British Motor CorporationAustin and Morris vehicles were manufactured at BMC (Turkey) under license during its early years. 1966 was the first year BMC started adding truck, light truck, tractor and engine production in its product line.
Tractors were produced under license beginning in 1966 from BMC - U.K. and its affiliates/subsidiaries. They were sold under the Austin-Leyland, Morris-Leyland and Nuffield Morris brands for sale in Turkey, and some were shipped to England and sold as Leyland (235/302) and Marshall (302). Tractor production ceased in 1985.
In 1989 the company was fully acquired by the Çukurova Group of Turkey. From then, BMC started to produce its own indigenous product line which is independent from the other major manufacturers.
In 1996 BMC started the production of the Profesyonel series, which are produced in Turkey and (since 2004) under license in Iran.
BMC also produces buses as part of the Belde series (since 1993) and Probus series.
Since 2000, BMC exports trucks and buses to numerous countries around the world. When exports to the United Kingdom began in 2003, this marked the return to the UK of the BMC brand name, not seen on British roads since the 1960s.
MegaStar 2.8 L is built in İzmir (Turkey) by the BMC and production started in 2004. 10 versions of the vehicle are available with 2 different engines, with power ratings of 83 and 95 kW and manual transmission.
