Today, BMW (Bavarian Motor Works)is known for making luxury cars, sports cars, sport utility vehicles, crossovers, and motorcycles, but they didn’t start out that way. Bavarian Motor Works (or BMW) started as a company that manufactured aircraft engines during World War One in 1916. BMW didn’t start marketing cars until they bought the rights to the Dixi line of cars in 1928. The first car BMW produced was a rebranded Dixi that they called the BMW 3/15. BMW started expanding and making a name for themselves in luxury and sports cars in the 1930s. Coming up to World War Two, BMWs main products were aircraft engines, automobiles, and motorcycles. In the 1940s, car production came to a halt during World War II, but they still produced aircraft engines and motorcycles.
At the end of World War II, most of the German BMW headquarters had been bombed and destroyed. The few BMW facilities that were not were ordered to cease any production of any cars, motorcycles, or airplane engines. BMW survived during the few years of ended production by creating pots/pans, and bicycles. By 1948, BMW came back to building motorcycles. BMW car production came back in the 1950s.
BMW had some serious financial trouble in the 1950s, but came back into prosperity in the 1960s when they released the “BMW New Class”. This was the point where BMW started becoming known for being a leading manufacturer of sport cars. BMW, since the 1960s, has made significant history in touring cars, formula one, and the Isle of Man TT.
Bavarian Motor Sports markets automobiles under the name of BMW, Mini, and Rolls-Royce. BMW makes multiple lines of cars including the BMW Model Line (Luxury cars), the X-Series (SUVs and Crossovers), Z-Series (Roadster), and iModels (Hybrid and Electric Cars).
