Speaking to the Beijing News, the boss of BMW China, Christopher Stark, revealed: "The Mega City Vehicle will be launched in 2013 and is to be locally produced thereafter".
No further details on the production site, proposed timetable or possible joint venture partner were disclosed.
BMW had already gone public on plans to produce the Mega City Vehicle at its existing plant in Leipzig, Germany, which is to receive a 400 million Euro investment to create a new production line. However, Stark's comments are the first to reveal the German car maker's plans for a second producton site for the new city car.
