BMW Reports Strong November Growth

There is no middle ground with the world's carmakers. Whereas last year all of them were gasping for air, this year the same ones announce sales record after sales record tumbling like a deck of cards.

Among the last to announce the sales figures for the 11th month of the year, German manufacturer BMW presents a 19.8 increase in sales (129,014 units sold last month), BMW's highest percentage of monthly growth of the year.

“The BMW Group is well on its way to reaching its target of more than 1.4 million units for this year,”
said Ian Robertson, BMW member of the board for Sales and Marketing.

“Thanks to our ongoing product offensive, we are outperforming the market and were able to expand our market share worldwide once again in November. As we do so, we continue to aim for a good balance between our sales in Europe, the Americas and Asia.”

As usual in the past year or so, the fastest growing market for BMW was China, who reported an increase of more than double last year's figures (104.3 percent, or 17,302 vehicles sold). The strongest market in terms of units sold remained Germany, with 25,156 cars sold (29.6 percent up), followed closely by the US, where 22,883 vehicles left the dealerships' floors (an increase of 25.2 percent compared to the same month of last year).

Perhaps for the first time this year, the entire badges in the group posted growth, including MINI, Rolls-Royce (one of the hardest hit brands by the economic downturn of last year) and BMW Motorcycles.
