A Brief History of BMW

Plenty of Chico, CA, and NorCal residents drive BMWs, and there's a rich history behind the popular car brand. The company was named Bayerische Motoren Werke (BMW) in 1922. BMW became an automobile manufacturer when it purchased Fahrzeugfabrik Eisenach, and the company released its first car, the BMW 3/15. Throughout the 1930s, BMW expanded its range into sports cars and larger luxury cars. 


After World War II, BMW restarted motorcycle production, and resumed car production in 1952 with the BMW 501 luxury saloon. BMW's range of cars was extended again in 1955, but slow sales of luxury cars and small profit margins from microcars caused BMW to be in serious financial trouble, and in 1959 the company was taken over by Daimler-Benz.
