About The BMW Company
BMW was originally founded in 1916 when two small aircraft businesses, Gustave Otto’s Gustav Flugmaschinefabrik and Rapp-Motorenwerke, merged forming Bayerische Flugzeug-Werke or Bavarian Aircraft Works in English. The company was reorganized and renamed Bayerische Motoren Werke GmbH by Franz-Josef Popp shortly thereafter, with another and final name change to Bayerische Moteren Werke or Bavarian Motor Works (BMW) in 1918.
BMW continued to produce aircraft engines until it was prohibited following World War I; however, the company continued to manufacture boat, farming equipment and truck engines. As aircraft orders declined in the early 1920’s, BMW also produced workbenches, office furniture, railway car brakes, motorized bicycles and motorcycle engines. The M2 B 15 engine debuted in 1920 and was featured on the first BMW “Victoria” motorcycle. BMW continues to make motorcycles to this day under the BMW Motorrad and Husqvarna nameplates.
The first BMW Automobile appeared in 1928. The BMW Dixi 3/15 featured a 743cc 4 cylinder engine with 15 horsepower. An improved model, the DA/2, was introduced the following year and BMW won its first motor race of many to come in 1930. Early popular BMW models include the 328 Roadster and the BMW Isetta. But, after financial difficulties in the 1950’s, it was the 700 model introduced in 1959 that saved BMW. BMW continued successful sales with the first “sporty sedan”, the BMW 1500, in 1961.
Over the years, the BMW brand has produced the 1 Series, the 3 Series, the 5 Series, the 6 Series, the 7 Series, the 8 Series, the M Series, the X Series and the Z Series. Each of these series has featured a variation of options and body styles including a hatchback, coupe, sedan, convertible, wagon and compact crossover SUV. Currently, all but the 8 Series is in production. A variation of models are available depending on each market.
