Bavarian Motor Works ''BMW''

BMW is a German automobile, motorcycle and engine manufactoring company founded in 1916. The
company consequently shifted to motorcycle production in 1923, once the restrictions of the treaty started
to be lifted, followed by automobiles in 192829.
The first car which BMW successfully produced and the car which launched BMW on the road to
automobile production was the Dixi, it was based on the Austin 7 and licensed from the Austin Motor
Company in Birmingham, England. By the year 1959, the automotive division of BMW was in financial
difficulties and a shareholders meeting was held to decide whether to go into liquidation or find a way of
carrying on.
It was decided to carry on and to try to cash in on the current economy car boom enjoyed so successfully
by some of Germanys ex-aircraft manufacturers such as Messerschmitt and Heinkel.
The rights to manufacture the Italian Iso Isetta were bought; the tiny cars themselves were to be powered
by a modified form of BMWs own motorcycle engine. This was moderately successful and helped the
company get back on its feet.
The controlling majority shareholder of the BMW Aktiengesellschaft since 1959 is the Quandt family,
which owns about 46% of the stock. The rest is in public float.
It also owns and produces the MINI brand, and is the parent company of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Chairman of the company today is Norbert Reithofer, as chief designer - Adrian van Hoydonk.
The head office is situated in Munich.
Major production facilities are concentrated in Germany (Dingolfing, Regensburg, Leipzig, Munich)
and USA (Spartanburg).
Also, cars are going to factories in Thailand, Malaysia, India, Egypt, South Africa, Vietnam. In Russia,
BMW cars assembled in Kaliningrad (Avtotor)
Overseas subsidiaries:
South Africa, United States, India, China, Canada, Austria, Egypt.

BMW Cars
New class
The New Class (German: Neue Klasse) was a line of compact sedans and coupes starting with the 1962
1500 and continuing through the last 2002s in 1977. Powered by BMWs celebrated four-cylinder M10
engine, the New Class models featured a fully independent suspension, MacPherson struts in front, and
front disc brakes.
Initially a family of four-door sedans and two-door coupes, the New Class line was broadened to twodoor sports sedans with the addition of the 02 Series 1600 and 2002 in 1966.
Sharing little in common with the rest of the line beyond power train, the sporty siblings caught auto
enthusiasts attention and established BMW as an international brand.
Precursors to the famed BMW 3 Series, the two-doors success cemented the firms future as an upper tier
performance car maker. New Class four-doors with numbers ending in 0 were replaced by the larger
BMW 5 Series in 1972.
The upscale 2000C and 2000CS coupes were replaced by the six-cylinder BMW E9, introduced in 1969
with the 2800CS. The 1600 two-door was discontinued in 1975, the 2002 replaced by the 320i in 1975.
