BMW Group Reaches Record Month Sales in September

Despite the European crisis, BMW managed to reach a record month in sales in September.

BMW, Rolls-Royce and Mini delivered more than 177,716 units worldwide, compared with 159,223 units last year, up 11.6% compared with September 2011. The automaker also reported its best nine months with sales up 8.3% to 1,335,502 vehicles, compared with 1,232,619 units last year.

“We made solid gains in many of our markets last month and were once again able to achieve record sales in September, despite the difficult environment in some European countries. We are well on course to achieving a new sales record for the whole year,” said Ian Robertson, responsible for Sales and Marketing BMW.

BMW’s sales increased 14.3% to 146,843 units, the BMW 1 Series selling 23,583 units, up 51.1%, the second generation BMW 1 Series 5-Door Hatch sold more than 150.000 vehicles, the BMW 3 Series’ sales were up 9.7% to 39,302 units and the BMW 5 Series increased 7.9% to 29,996 vehicles. The BMW 6 Series managed to more than triple sales reaching 2,426 vehicles, up 222.6%. Year-to-date BMW sold 1,109,962 vehicles, up 8.6%.

MINI sold 30,562 vehicles in September, up 0.6% and 223,214 vehicles, up 7.2% for the first nine months of the year. The automaker unveiled at the Paris auto show the MINI Paceman, the world’s first Sports Activity Coupe, which will arrive in the first half of 2013. Rolls-Royce’s sales increased 4.7% year-to-date and the introduction of the Phantom Series II kept demand up in September.
