The BMW Group achieved a worldwide double-digit sales increase in September, continuing the company’s long-term upward sales trend and securing a new record for the month.

A total of 237,973 vehicles were delivered to customers around the world, an increase of 10.5 per cent on the same month last year. This result brings the year-to-date sales total to 1,746,638 – up 6.2 per cent compared with the same period last year and the company’s best ever sales result for the first three quarters of the year.

“Once again, the BMW Group has delivered strong sales growth across the company’s line-up,” commented Dr Ian Robertson, Member of the BMW AG board of management with responsibility for sales and marketing BMW.

“Demand for our premium models continues to grow around the world and in all vehicle classes.

“Customer interest in our broad range of electrified models is also stronger than ever, with a clear upward trend. Our policy of balanced global sales continues to deliver sustainable success and profitability remains our primary focus.”
