BMW has recently announced plans to invest $900 million into their plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina for the production of the upcoming X4 crossover.

The investment will create 300 new jobs by the end of 2012, increasing production capacity to 350,000 units and became necessary in response to a growing global demand for BMW’s X-Model crossovers.

A smaller version of the X6, the X4 is being designed for the emerging compact crossover market.Although the company have not yet revealed full details about the model, it will be based on the X3, which was also built on the same plant. Expected to launch in 2014, to rival that of the Range Rover Evoque and the Porsche Cajun, the X4 will reportedly offer a variety of four- and six-cylinder engines.
