: January 2006 BMW Group Sales Report

02-01-2006, 02:27 PM
BMW Group vehicle sales this January were up 12.4% when compared to last January.

Sales of the X Series were down 9.8% when compared to January, 2005 while car sales were up 22.6% as the 3, 5 and 7 Series all had a good month.

Sales of the BMW brand were up 14.4% when compared to last January.

This January BMW outsold Mercedes-Benz by 6,805 units but still failed to out sell Lexus which sold a total of 19,658 units.

Last November I added a complete report for Lexus as I believe that the introduction of the new IS250 and IS350 models is going to give the BMW 3 Series a real challenge this year. January sales of the Lexus IS250 and IS350 held steady at just over 4,000 units while the new E90 3 Series sedans totaled 7,411 units. Iím betting that this sales gap will close in the coming months. It will be fun to see what happens.
