In August, BMW sold 99,755 off dealer lots, while its biggest competitor Mercedes, came out a little short: 96,200. The numbers are still impressive when compared to the other german automobile manufacturer, Audi, that has only sold 66,400 in August, about 32% less than BMW and Mercedes.
Part of the BMW success is based on the Mini sales, which accounted for 14,752 units. The British based car has definitely helped BMW achieve its goals and we’re expecting that the new Mini Clubman model that it’s in the works, to produce even more revenue.
The BMW car model with the highest sales growth was the new BMW X5 which is up 24% comparing to the other months, which I find it pretty amazing since we were still in the summer season and it’s known that SUVs or SAVs has BMW calls them, tend to sell better as we approach the cold season.
Next year, around this time, the BMW 1-series should be in full production and it’s expected to boost the BMW sales numbers.
