Work in the European plants and in South Africa is expected to stand still until April 19, 2020, while motorcycle production in Berlin is not yet affected.

BMW was ready to act because the protection of the workforce was secured and the expected drop in sales was to be cushioned. They are in solidarity with the car manufacturers VW, Daimler, Opel and Ferrari, which announced the closure of their businesses at the beginning of the week.
