About us

VDL Nedcar

VDL Nedcar is an experienced Dutch vehicle contract manufacturing company that has been building cars for over 50 years. Since starting as DAF, we have built cars for Volvo, DaimlerChrysler, Mitsubishi and currently BMW. Twenty-three different models – together representing almost six million cars – have rolled off the production line in Born.

Since the end of 2012, we have been part of VDL Groep based in Eindhoven, and the factory has developed into an independent car manufacturer. Between 2012 and 2014 the production halls and production lines were redeveloped and rebuilt, and our logistic facilities were expanded and modernised. The factory was officially reopened in July 2014, when production was started on the MINI Hatch. That model was joined in 2015 by the MINI Convertible and in 2016 the MINI Countryman, a model of which we also produce the PHEV variant. Since 2017, VDL Nedcar has also built the BMW X1.
