Burkhard Goeschel: The plant in Germany has capacity for another vehicle.
Dingolfing might be chosen for a multipurpose vehicle because of the vehicles size and because the plant has capacity for another model, says Burkhard Goeschel, the BMW board member responsible for development and purchasing.
Goeschel made his comments here last month at the launch of the BMW M6.
BMWs so-called space-functional concept is scheduled to arrive in 2008.
Sources say the concept will be based on a new platform for the 7-series sedan, also due in three years.
The current 7 series is built in Dingolfing alongside models of the 5 series and 6 series.
The vehicle would be sold only in Europe.
Its one of two new vehicles; the other, a crossover, will be built in the United States.
BMW CEO Helmut Panke announced plans to make the car-based multipurpose vehicle at the Geneva auto show.
Panke said it would be built in Germany but didnt say which of BMWs four plants might get the project. The other plants are in Regensburg, Munich and Leipzig.
The crossover vehicle will be built at BMWs plant in Spartanburg, S.C., where BMW makes Z4 roadsters and X5 SUVs.
The new vehicle, also scheduled to arrive in 2008, is expected to seat five.
