GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

BMW has hit the fastest production milestone in the history of the company's only North American manufacturing facility.

The Greer plant completed the 2.5 millionth BMW produced in the plant's two-decade history on Tuesday, according to a press release from the company.

The vehicle that reached the milestone was a white BMW X5 xDrive50, the company said. The luxury SUV is now heading to a dealership in San Antonio, TX.

"This half-million production milestone was reached in 21 months, the quickest in the plant's history. The plant is in the midst of completing a $900 million expansion to add the all-new BMW X4 and prepare for annual capacity of 350,000 units by the end of 2014," a representative for BMW said in a press release.
