That should give you an idea of the kind of cash we’re paying if you’re selling a BMW. For those looking to stay in the BMW family, have a look at some interesting pieces on the timeline of this renowned German company.
1916 marked the official foundation of Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto’s public limited company (AG) Bayerische Motoren Werke. The year after, the famous BMW emblem was created. Although it has been adapted many times since, it always incorporates the rotating propeller in the Blue and White of Bavarian State colours.
1923 marked the first year that the company made a complete vehicle, the R32 motorcycle, as opposed to only engines as they had been making so far. By 1928, BMW had started manufacturing automobiles of it’s own in the factory in Thuringia, Germany. The first actual car was license through Austin Motor Company but a few years later, BMW replaced it with its own design.
The 1930’s was the decade for establishing a plant near Munich for the industrial production of aircraft engines. In 1941, during World War II, the company was almost entirely devoted to its role as a war materials manufacturer, rather than an automobile creator. It became a crucial piece of support for the German Air force.
During the war and following on after, the company started employing foreign workers in what was then accept forced labour, and not in great conditions. They most had Eastern European convict and Prisoners of War as well as Western European labourers, and finally, the concentration camp prisoners.
The first post-war car was made in 1951, known as the 501. It was a 6-seater, 6 cylinder engine luxury car. Due to its high-quality and price tag, it wasn’t immediately a success with the public. However, it did loan to BMW’s image as a technical, luxury carmaker.
The 1500 Model was presented in 1961 and exemplified BMW as a company that catered to the modern, sporty driver. The 4 door middle class sedan was soon a commercial success.
BMW opened up shop in the big US of A in 1994 with their South Carolina production facility. Originally it was built to put out the popular BMW z3 Roadster but now makes the X3, X4, X5 and X6.
At the 1999 Detroit Auto show, the BMW X5 was revealed. This all-wheel-drive off road vehicle put into place a brand new market segment for cars that take drivers beyond the suburban roads.
2001 launched the Mini hatch, the pioneer of the small-car segment. This athletic, spunky car was well received and followed by many more models.
Perhaps what can be called the hallmark of the BMW brand, the BMW 1 series, was finally launched in 2004. The following year, the Leipzig plant was opened to manufacture the 1 series as well as the 2 series convertible coupe and the active tourer.
The company made the contribution of the DriveNow concept in 2011, a new car-sharing program that eventually spread to San Francisco, Hamburg, and Berlin. They are now offering the BMW I as part of the scheme.
A recent major milestone was BMW’s own introduction of the electric car. The emission free BMW i3 was unveiled in 2013 and the i8 in 2014.
The dynamic history of this booming car company has certainly seen darker days, yet seems to be moving further into the light as time goes on.
