BMW shows how the company name sounds rightMay 26, 2020
Apparently the guys from the Bavarian brand BMW are tired of hearing the incorrect pronunciation of the brand name. And that is why they released a very short video that shows how to correctly pronounce the abbreviation BMW in German.
I’m sure many of you know what BMW specifically means. This is an abbreviation for the phrase Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, which means “Bavarian Motor Plant” in English. The name of the company reflects the geographical origin of the brand, which was founded on March 7, 104 years ago. We have heard many different ways of pronouncing the acronym BMW, but the automaker finally decided to “dot all the and” and show the whole world how the name of the premium brand should sound.
The automaker’s press office has just released a new video on one of its official Facebook channels, which shows the surest way to say BMW.
This may be one of the shortest videos that we have ever published, if not the shortest, but it is more than enough to clarify the situation with the name of the Bavarian brand once and for all.
However, we need to add one more thing. The guy in the video has a very clear BMW pronunciation, but it’s very important to note that this is how you should pronounce BMW in German and not in English or other languages. Obviously, there are significant differences between languages - for example, English speakers simply pronounce the three letters B, M and W, but the sound “W” turns into “V”. From the lips of a German citizen, the name of the brand sounds like “B & M”. In fact, it is quite important to pronounce the name of the company correctly, so as not to be considered an ignoramus.
Not so long ago, we wrote that the BMW 6 Series GT lost part of the camouflage on spy photos. “Fresh” pictures reveal more details before the upcoming debut of new items.
