2016 marks Bavarian Motor Works 100th anniversary as a manufacturer of luxury cars, motorcycles, and engines. Founded in Germany in 1916, BMW originally built aircraft engines, but as a condition of the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed at the end of World War I, the company had to end its production of aircraft engines. In 1923, BMW started building motorcycles, and in 1928, the company started making automobiles.
In the 1930s, BMW resumed its aircraft engine production as part of Germany’s rearmament plan for World War II. Aircraft engine production remained BMW’s primary business until the late 1950s. At this time, the company decided to focus on boosting its automobile division through the mass production of reasonably priced economy cars.
Today, BMW is a globally recognized brand primarily known for its luxury cars. BMW headquarters is in Munich with subsidiaries in North America, Brazil, Asia, Egypt, and South Africa. The company has close to 120,000 employees, and it brings in over $90 billion in annual revenues. They offer sedan series 2-7, sports activity vehicles X1 – X6, M series 2-6, the all-electric i3, and the plug-in hybrid i8.
