The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported November sales of 22,883 vehicles, an increase of 27.1 percent from the 18,002 vehicles sold in November 2009. Year-to-date, the BMW Group has sold 238,157 vehicles, up 9.3 percent from the 217,840 units sold through November 2009.

“November is normally a tough month but we increased our sales momentum thanks to strong demand for our all-wheel-drive vehicles, the X5 and X6 in particular, and now that it’s available, the 5 Series with AWD,” said Jim O’Donnell, President and CEO of BMW of North America, LLC. “The overall market shows signs of improvement with consumer confidence increasing slightly but our dealers know they have to work for every sale and that work is paying off.”

    Please show the chart of sales by model series. Further displays how BMW is managing sales in the US market.

    If the anecdotal evidence is accurate — NA has been squeezing dealers — then they’re NOT selling all of the cars they possibly could.

    Consequently, the posted Y-O-Y % increases are understated.

      Some infos are involved in text: “In November, best performing vehicles included the 5 Series, up 58 percent to 5,042 units, 1 Series, up 40.7 percent to 1,019 units, and the 3 Series, up 36.6 percent to 8,928 units. The SAV segment continues to perform very well with the X5, up 24 percent to 3,436 units and the X6, up 30.8 percent to 561units.”

    5-er got really strong here. Actually, it reached slightly better result than E-class which ended November with 4,986 units sold. The only complained is that there are no precise data about the contribution that 5GT made to overall 5-er November sale numbers. Interestingly, X5 went neck to neck with M-class in November, although the letter was slightly better by reaching 34 units more. C-class lost badly to 3-er ending with 3,930 units sold. Also BMW sold more than MB overall, since the letter ended with 18,208 units (excluding Smart and Sprinter).

    As for not mentioned BMW models: 7-er is down about 23% with 803 units sold (I wonder whether 5GT steals some potential customers from 7-er); Z4 is down about 49% with 167 units sold; X3 and 6-er are basically out of sale, although they reached – respectively – 91 and 50 units.

    As it seems the 7 Series is no match for the S-Class /as always/.

    YTD 12,639 for MB
    YTD 11,229 for BMW
    Actually, not far behind, only about 30 day supply. Considering MB sells more fleet cars…

      BMW is slightly ahead this year, since MB sold 196.288 units YTD. This month BMW also surpassed MB by 1889 units.
