German auto giant BMW plans to build four wind turbines to power a factory with enough electricity to assemble hundreds of vehicles a day, auto newspaper Automobilwoche will report on Monday.

The wind farm should be able to produce the necessary energy by late 2013, the company said.

BMW said it wants its Leipzig factory to become an example of production, one that could eventually be followed in assembly plants worldwide.

The Leipzig factory is forecast to produce about 200,000 vehicles in 2011 at a rate of 740 a day.
