BMW’s chip troubles have already resulted in the loss of production of 30,000 new vehicles this year alone. The chip crisis is not expected to be over anytime soon though many analysts predict some relief will come early next year as chip supplies begin to get back on track.

The Spartanburg, South Carolina plant is home to the company’s most popular vehicles, all of which are SUVs. The BMW X3, X4, X5, X6, and X7 are all manufactured there. The upcoming X8 flagship model is also expected to call Spartanburg home.
