BMW (Bavarian Motor Works) is one of the largest luxury car brands in the market today. The company was founded in 1916 by Camillo Castiglioni, Franz Josef Popp, and Karl Rapp initially as a manufacturer of aircraft engines throughout World War I. In the 1920s, the brand ventured into producing motorcycles and engines, leading up to 1928 when the German company went into manufacturing automobiles.
From its headquarters in Munich, BMW grew into a multinational company catering to the global premium automotive market. They began expanding their reach to the United Kingdom, United States, South Africa, and even to Asian countries such as China, India, the Philippines, and more. In 2015, BMW became the world’s 12th largest vehicle manufacturer with over 2 million automotive produced. The brand has also been a staple in motorsports, making its rounds in Formula 1.
BMW has become one of the most acclaimed luxury car brands in the world through its elevated quality, refined aesthetics, and remarkable drive performance. In 1993, Filipino automobile enthusiasts had their first taste of the German brand’s top-class lineup and has since been topping the charts in the premium vehicle segment.
In December 2017, SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp. (SMCACDC) became the official importer, distributor, and service provider of BMW automobiles and motorcycles in the Philippines. SMCACDC is an exclusively owned Filipino company under San Miguel Corporation headed by its chairman, Mr. Ramon S. Ang.
Through this partnership with one of the country’s largest conglomerates, BMW has been able to further strengthen its hold in the premium vehicle segment. Currently, the company has six full-service dealer facilities nationwide, making them the largest in the luxury vehicle segment. BMW Philippines also has a growing number of motorcycle dealerships across the country with six BMW Motorrad facilities.
BMW offers an extensive lineup of models ranging from executive sedans to luxury sports cars.
