After Rimac Automobili took the reins at Bugatti a few months ago, it became obvious that the brand’s future would embrace electric technology to partly power its vehicles. Consequently, Bugatti’s Molsheim headquarters is set to undergo expansion, despite reservations from some Bugatti enthusiasts, in order to accommodate the production of electric and hybrid-powered vehicles.

The Bugatti Molsheim HQ has not one purpose

Please do not write a raging Tweet yet. The new facility, next to the Atelier, slated to open its doors in the latter half of 2024, will not only cater to the production of the Bugatti Bolide and the W16 Mistral. It will also serve as the birthplace for future projects under the auspices of Bugatti Rimac.

Spanning an area of 2,120 m², this facility will host various programs, including the already successful apprenticeship programs, quality control, and planning units. The aim is to bolster the workforce by an impressive 50% by 2027, creating employment opportunities and technical expertise.
