BMW Group Achieves Best Sales Year Ever in the U.S.

BMW Group Achieves Best Sales Year Ever in the U.S.
Woodcliff Lake, NJ - January 3, 2013

In 2012, the BMW Group in the U.S. achieved its best sales since the previous record year of 2007 retailing 347,583 vehicles, up 13.8 percent compared to the 305,418 vehicles sold in 2011. BMW Group reported December sales of 43,855 vehicles, an increase of 34.8 percent from the 32,545 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago.

"To turn months of critically short supply into the best year ever for the BMW Group in the U.S. is a monumental achievement, emphasizing what a customer-oriented dealer network with an agile logistics team can do," said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America. "The post-recession sales momentum that started in 2010 reached an unprecedented level in December, making us strongly confident and optimistic as we enter 2013."

Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 39.4 percent in December for a total of 37,399 compared to 26,834 vehicles sold in December, 2011. For the year, BMW brand sales were up 13.5 percent to 281,460 vehicles compared to 247,907 sold 2011.

For 2012, best performing vehicles included the 5 Series, up 10.3 percent to 56,798 units; the 6 Series, up 110.3 percent to 8,208 units; and the X3, up 26.6 percent to 35,173 units.

December's sales vaulted BMW past Mercedes, which held a 1,849-vehicle lead through November. BMW finished 2012 with 281,460 vehicles sold, topping Mercedes-Benz by 7,326. The two German automakers were vying to be the top luxury-auto brand in the U.S. after outselling Lexus last year. Lexus was the top- selling luxury brand in the U.S. for 11 years until natural disasters in Asia curtailed vehicle production in 2011.

"We like to be No. 1 and we are No. 1 in the world," Ludwig Willisch, chief executive officer of BMW of North America, said in an interview. "Being No. 1 means success."

BMW's U.S. sales rose 14 percent for 2012, the Munich-based automaker said today.

Why are you so happy that the F30 is selling so well? Soon, you'll see a similar car to what you're driving everywhere you turn, and it will just look like another mass produced car? It will be like the Toyota of the European cars.

Personally, I appreciate driving a car that is more unique.

Your eb2 msport is an option and not a model. As there are not a ton of 3 Series "is" convertibles, anywhere. Like I said...a little more unique. Also like our S4 and our M3 and my GTS.
