In the 80s, BMW began production in Regensburg and the company was operating efficiently all over the world. In the 90s, BMW entered the US, and soon acquired the British Rover Group. This brought the active Land Rover, Rover, and MINI brands under BMW ownership along with rights of numerous dormant marques, such as Wolseley, Triumph, Riley, Morris, and Austin.
In the 2000s, BMW took over MINI and Rolls-Royce and the company introduced its famous 1 series. Soon enough, the company established a plant in Shenyang and even created a joint-venture with China. By 2013, the BMW launched the all new I3, which kick started the new era of electric mobility.
