Turns out most Kiwis have been pronouncing BMW wrong

Must See 28/05/2020

When it comes to saying the name of popular European car brand BMW, it seems that the pronounciation of the brand is pretty straight forward.

Bee - Emm - Double Yew or Bee - Emm - Dub

But, turns out neither of those pronounciations are correct - according to the car maker itself.

The company, whose letters translate to Bavarian Motor Works when translated to English, has released a video showing us the proper way to pronounce it's brand.

The guy in the video clearly pronounces the three sounds but does so in German, which changes the 'W' sound to a 'V'. Thus, Bee - Ehm - Wie (Vee). 

Watch the close up of the man's mouth above.
