GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

BMW will move forward with its plans to build a factory in Mexico to assemble 3-series vehicles despite President-elect Donald Trump’s threats of high tariffs on the vehicles if sold in the U.S., according to a Bloomberg report.

Trump said BMW will face a 35 percent import duty on vehicles the company imports to the US from the Mexican facility.

Per the report, BMW said its largest factory will remain in South Carolina and the smaller,  $1 billion facility in Mexico, which is expected to open in 2019, will produce vehicles that are exported globally.
