Is BMW a Foreign Car?

BMW Models Parked in Desert

These days, more and more drivers in the Normal area are thinking about where their cars are made! We don’t blame them, and if you’ve ever wondered, “Is BMW a foreign car?” you’re certainly not alone. BMW stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, and if you have an eye for languages, you’ve probably already guessed that BMW is and always has been a German-owned company.

Where is BMW Made?

Is BMW foreign? The answer is certainly yes. However, today’s globalized production economy is full of interesting twists and turns! Even when a given auto manufacturer is based in a certain faraway country, there’s a good chance that its vehicles are built all over the world, or even in your own backyard! So, what country makes BMW?

Currently, there are several ways to answer the question, “Where is BMW made?” Today, complete BMW automobiles are manufactured in five different countries. Plants can be found in Germany, Mexico, China, South Africa, and here in the USA! In fact, the BMW manufacturing center in Greer, SC is the largest BMW production facility in existence.
