We’ve heard about Tesla batteries being used to add power to a home in a renewable format and now know that another company has found a great way to use their batteries for more than just automotive use.
Nearly one hundred years ago, in the southern part of Germany that borders the Czech Republic, and Austria, Bavarian Motor Works was founded.

Over the past eight and a half decades BMW has grown in popularity to become one of the world’s most popular luxury car designers, with no evidence of stopping or slowing down.
