Talking Corona and car production

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I'm wondering if X5 production already is delayed or delay is imminent because of the Corona virus.
Export from China is very low and I guess some Chinese parts are in a BMW
Are there already signs that production is slowing down?

I read something a couple of days ago about some carbrands (including BMW) have to slow down or shutdown production if the situation regarding Corona does not change. I hope not in your case, you’re already waiting for so long!

There is a factory in Italy producing an essential electronic system for a lot of German cars and that could become a problem. The factory is in the affected region and the factory is closed.

I don't know where battery production of the high voltage battery is done. I hope not in China.

"From March 2, all the other FCA plants in Europe and those of Renault, BMW and Peugeot will close too."

I think the next weeks we well feel the impact of this Corona mass hysteria.

Is yours already delivered? Or are you still waiting. I don't know if cars assembled in Spartanburg are effected by the closure of the Italian factory. Maybe they have a US based electronic supplier?
