What does the letter "B" in the car company BMW stand for?

Answer:

BAVARIAN

BMW stands for Bavarian Motor Works, or, translated into German, Bayerische Motoren Werke. If you’re a little rusty on world geography, Bavaria is a southern state in Germany where BMW originally started making airplane engines in 1917. After the end of World War I, BMW was forced to cease aircraft-engine production by the terms of the Versailles Armistice Treaty. The company consequently shifted to motorcycle production in 1923, followed by automobiles in 1928. If Bavarian Motor Works is too formal for your taste, their automobiles are nicknamed Bimmers, while the motorcycles are often called Beemers (or Beamers).
