Borgward Group AG is a German-based automobile brand established in May, 2008 with headquarter in Stuttgart, Germany. The company carries the name and logo of the former German brand Borgward. Design and engineering is located in Germany, but the cars are produced in China by Foton Motor.

Borgward started its business with a fleet of conventional SUVs with sales reaching approx. 75,000 units by January 2018 and has branches in China, Russia, India, Brazil and Mexico. However, the company aspires to become one of the leading electric-vehicle manufacturers in the next decade. Full electric models, BXi7 and GT SUV BX6 were officially launched on May 9, 2018, in Beijing, China, and at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017 presented the Isabella concept, its vision of a full-electric 4-door coupé.[1]

Borgward currently employs nearly 5,500 people globally and has more than 2,300 engineers. It has the independent development capability of complete vehicles, engines and new energy. The vehicle intelligent manufacturing plant and engine factory with flexible production of 8 models have dual production qualifications for traditional energy and new energy vehicles.

History

Christian Borgward revived the Borgward trademark, with the help of the Chinese truck manufacturer Foton, who sold a stake in the company to the Chinese car rental group Ucar in 2019.[2] Borgward Group AG is responsible for the development, production, sales and marketing of Borgward cars.[3]

Genesis

In 2005[dubious ] Christian Borgward (grandson of Carl F. W. Borgward)[4] as president and Karlheinz L. Knöss as CEO and vice president of the supervisory board started the revival of Borgward. They started the development of the new Borgward automobiles with Roland Sternmann (Designer) and Benjamin Nawka (Designer), set up the organisation and engineer team and developed several car concepts. On May 21, 2008, Borgward and Knöss founded Borgward Group AG in Lucerne (Switzerland),[5] later relocating to Stuttgart (Germany).

Overseas Presence

The brand is distributed in Malaysia by Go Bremen Motors, which was launched in 2018.[6] An agreement signed between GBM and Borgward will also see manufacturing of vehicles and exports to some parts of ASEAN.[6] However, plans to launch the brand in Malaysia in 2019 were stalled and suggestions were made that it would be launched by first quarter 2020.[7]

In April 2020, it was announced that DSM Global Company is in partnership with GBM to handle car exports to Nepal with the former handling Nepali operations.[8][9]

Borgward announced that the company will retail its vehicles to Britain and Ireland in 2019.[10]

Production

Currently Foton Motor (a subsidiary of BAIC) are producing all Borgward cars.

Foton is currently Borgward's sole investor, but both companies have repeatedly announced that the ownership structure may change over time.[11]

Borgward announced plans for a new car at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show after a 54-year hiatus.[12][13] The new company is backed up financially by Chinese truck manufacturer Foton.[14]

The Borgward BX7 SUV was introduced at the IAA, Frankfurt in September 2015.[15] and sales in China started in July 2016. The company has since developed several other new models, including the BX7 TS, BX5 and BX6 SUVs.
