BMW increased overall sales in the BMW Brand market 13.5% in October 2011 while seeing total BMW Group Sales (including MINI) jumping up 17.5%. The interesting points out of the report shows drops (some big) in sales for the 1, 3, X6 and Z4 lines but BIG jumps in sales for the 5, 6, 7, X3 and X5.
The report is not surprising given the upcoming change over from the E90 3 Series Sedan to the F30 3 Series Sedan set to be released in February 2012. The surge in sales for the 5 Series looks to be attributed to a full line-up of models available including the 528i which went on sale in September 2011.
Year-to-date, the BMW brand is up 12.9% on sales of 199,552 January through October compared to 176,736 sold in the first ten months of 2010.
BMW is looking forward to a very strong push to the end of the year!
