German Factory Mascots

Manufacturer:  BMW 1928 to date.  Dixi.

1928-33 BMW built Dixi mascot.  The BMW company Bayerische Motoren Werke began life in Munich manufacturing aircraft engines, and turned their attention also to motorcycles and in 1928 took over the Dixi company who were already building the British Austin Seven under licence at Einsenach.  The Dixi model was quickly developed and became the BMW 3/15, winning the 1929 Alpine Rally.  This is the only true BMW mascot I have encountered.
