Mexicans pronounce BMW as

“Ve emmee doble uu”

Spanish people say

“Ve emee uvee”

French people say

Ve emm doble bee”

BMW is pronounced

“Bee emm double uu” in English

So, we say “doble u” instead of “uve”

Soo... as prononced in Mexico, BMW is an anglicism.... an adaptaion of a term in English... but why?
