BMW Group U.S. January Sales Increase 5.8%

01.02.2012

BMW brand sales up 3.1%
MINI brand sales up 21.2%


Woodcliff Lake, NJ – February 1, 2012… The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported January sales of 19,739 vehicles, an increase of 5.8 percent from the 18,656 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago.

“The January results are the springboard for a year that will be full of new model launches beginning with the arrival of the sixth generation 3 Series in mid-February” said BMW of North America President and CEO Ludwig Willisch. “Nationwide, inventories are low after the extraordinary sales in December and we’re replenishing our dealers as fast as we can to meet the strong demand for our vehicles.”

BMW Brand Sales

Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 3.1 percent in January for a total of 16,405 compared to 15,905 vehicles sold in January, 2011.

In January, best performing vehicles include the X3 SAV – officially on sale in the U.S. for one year - up 56.9 percent to 1,687 units; the 6 Series, up 392.8 percent to 409 units and the 7 Series, up 56.1 percent to 977 units. One month before the premiere of the next generation BMW 3 Series, sales of the current model were up 16.2 percent to 6,698 units.

BMW Pre-Owned Vehicles

In January, sales of BMW used vehicles (including certified pre-owned and pre-owned) increased 0.4 percent to 11,698 vehicles from the 11,650 vehicles sold in January 2011.

MINI Brand Sales

MINI USA reported sales of 3,334 automobiles in January, an increase of 21.2 percent from the 2,751 sold in January 2011.

That's great news for the best auto brand in the world. Bravo BMW.

Out of curiosity, would we still get these announcements, if there was a decline in sales? I just want to make sure that we're getting objective news here and not just company propoganda.

Check the data table at the end. The non-bold values represent the declining results. Obviously BMW wouldn't make a press release announcing a decline, but these numbers are constantly updated and available every quarter on BMW Press website. I believe they are required to post them, whether it is a rise or a decline.

My bad. I meant "the data table on BMW's press website", not the one shown here.

Anyhow, for BMW sales! Can't wait to get mine, hopefully few years after finishing college

Actually this is not very good consider most manufactures had much bigger jump for January. MB sales also had led BMW last month.
