Munich. BMW Group sales continued their positive trend in August: Worldwide deliveries were up 4.4% on the same month last year, with a total of 181,126 premium BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles sold. This brings the company's total sales for the year to date to 1,617,512 units (+1.3%), in a volatile global market environment.
“This positive sales development underlines the impact of our model offensive. Our new X models are proving very popular with our customers," said Pieter Nota, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Customer, Brands and Sales. "Another positive is the continued strong sales growth of the BMW i3, the world's most successful electric vehicle in its segment. The plug-in hybrid version of the new BMW 3 Series, the BMW 330e*, was also added to our line-up of electric vehicles in August."

Munich. BMW Group sales continued their positive trend in July: worldwide deliveries were up 1.3% on the same month last year, with a total of 183,487 premium BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles sold. This brings the company’s total sales for the year to date to 1,436,382 (+0.9%). This growth was achieved despite ongoing volatility in several markets around the world.
“In a highly competitive and challenging global market, our new model rollout continues to have a positive impact on our sales result, with new highs recorded both in the month and the year to date. This year, the BMW brand is launching 21 new or revised models and those already on the market are proving very popular with customers,” said Pieter Nota, member of the BMW AG Board of Management responsible for Customer, Brands and Sales. “Sales of our BMW X vehicles are up over 27% in July; the launch of the new BMW X6 later this year is the final step in the complete renewal and expansion of this hugely successful range of vehicles. Meanwhile the pioneering BMW i3 is more popular than ever, with sales achieving double-digit growth once again in July.”
