text size: A- A+
"We enter the new year with positive momentum and despite the prevailing headwinds in some markets, we aim to achieve another record year in sales in 2013," said BMW sales and marketing boss Ian Robertson.
December of 2012 was particularly kind, and they sold 181,571 units, registering a boost of 15% over the same month of 2011. The growth was driven by models like the new 1-Series and 3-Series, which brought the total number of BMW-branded cars sold to 1.54 million (up 12% over 2011).
They managed to beat both Audi, which sold 1.45 million vehicles, and Mercedes-Benz, which shifted 1.32 million vehicles in total. Still, Mercedes-Benz officials are confident that they will become the number one premium automaker in the world, by the year 2020.
