History of BMW
The founding date of the business was 1916 in march 7th when they used to make Aircraft engines which were called Bayerische Flugzeugweke AG and the organization was renamed Bayerische Motoren Werke or simply BMW in 1922.
Most people consider them the best make of cars one of the best for the quality all they have more less and they have kind of like fanbase quite big with many people young and old alike wanting to own one alike .
The first ever product was straight-six aircraft engine known as BMW IIIa following the end of world war 1 the business stayed in business by instead making motorcycle engines or farm equipment or household items or railway brakes so it went on mostly supplying regular people instead of the German army.
The company made it’s first ever bike the BMW R 32 in the year of 1923 and finally became an automobile manufacturer in 1929 when it bought over the Fahrzeugfabrik Eisenach at the time built the Austin Sevens under licence from the Dixi Marque which is why the first car sold was rebadged Dixi called BMW 3/13 through the 1930s time period .
During the 1930’s the ranges was expanded into the sports cars and large luxury cars and motorbikes and vehicles would be main products of the business until world war 2 during being against the wishes of Director Mr Franz Josef Popp focussed on aircraft engines products with motorcyles as like side line business and car making stopped . BMW factories were heavily bombed during the war and the remaining factories in West Germany were banned from producing motor vehicles or aircraft after the war which forced them to make instead pots or pans or bikes instead in 1948 they started again motorcycle making and resumed car-making in Bavaria in 1952 with the BMW 501 Luxury Saloon style of vehicles being made.
In 1955 they decided to buy cheaper Isetta microcars under licence which made sense since the expensive cars after world war 2 would not sell as well as cheaper cars for now . In 1959 the organization was in a lot of trouble and was nearly taken over by a rival business called Daimler-Benz.
