Bmw background and Bmw deals news

German automaker BMW continues to be one of the top choices in the UK. Autoebid has a wide number of new BMW Deals and discount offers for you to choose from. 

Founded in 1916, BMW or Bayerische Motoren Werke (Bavarian Motor Works in English) has long been regarded as one of the best automakers in the world. Its famous emblem takes its origin from the company’s aeronautical history and the colours of the Bavarian state. 

BMW’s aeronautical engineering expertise was first tested on motorcycles in 1923, paving way for its introduction to cars in 1927. At present, however, BWM is widely known for producing technologically advanced sports and luxury saloons and SUVs. 

As one of the most profitable car manufacturers in the world, BMW has been consistent paying dividends to its shareholders, a tradition that started since 1916. 

In 1994, the German automaker bought UK Rover Group but later sold the brand to new management when it was not able to make the Rover brand fit the BMW spirit. Despite the sale of the Rover brand, BMW has retained the Land Rover, Mine and other smaller car brands. 

BMW is currently one of the most versatile carmakers with a vast range of models to offer to each distinct and varied customer – from the 1 Series sports hatch to 7 Series saloons. However, the 3 Series remained to be the car choice for UK buyers with over 40,000 registered vehicles today. 

The BMW 3 Series is known for its perfect combination of performance, elegance, luxury and fuel efficiency – something that other vehicle manufacturers are having a hard time competing with. 

Besides sedans, BMW also offers high-end SUV variants, from the relatively small and agile X1 to the sporty and always on the go X6 model. The mid-market segment was the cream of the crop for BMW, with the X3 and X5 being the most sellable SUV for the company. 

On the other hand, the BMW X6, a mix of coupe and SUV, offers more adventurous customers dynamic handling and off-road capability in one vehicle. The X6 is BMW’s attempt to introduce innovation in an otherwise unknown and less explored market segment. 

For those looking for fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicle, BMW also has the i3 pure electric vehicle and i8 plug-in hybrid. These models were released as part of the company’s commitment to providing premium vehicles to everyone. 

In fact, it is an open secret that the Munich-based company desired to be the most sustainable automaker. Both the i3 and i8 extensively used aluminium, which was produced using carbon-neutral hydroelectric power, for its construction to further contribute to its energy-saving technology.   

If that was not enough, BWM’s European fleet has an average emission level of 150g/km carbon dioxide, putting the company on top of the podium for the most environmentally friendly car company in the world. 

Even its traditional gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles are arguably the most fuel-efficient in the world.
