BMW is today one of the world's leading prestige brands. Its tag line, "the ultimate driving machine", sums up the sporting heart of the BMW badge and its aspirational appeal to buyers the world over.

But the company that began making cars and motorcycles in 1923, struggled for decades until, in 1968, it launched itself on the modern era with the release of the large 2500 and 2800 six-cylinder sedans.

It is now synonymous with quality, technology and premium sporting verve - whether a small hatch, SUV or thunderously powerful crossover, every BMW is built for the driver. And now, with its i3 and i8 EVs, and a range of hybrid vehicles poised on world markets, BMW's sporting heart also beats for the environment.

BMW also owns MINI.
