MINI with the cars sold last month managed to achieve a total of over 2.5 million units sold since BMW took over in 2001. The most recent MINI model in the line-up proved to be a valuable addition to the company's sales numbers, selling big in its first months.

Over 3000 Pacemans were sold since it was released in mid-March, making the Sports Activity Coupe one of the best sellers in the brand's history. Worldwide MINI sold 26,955 units, a slight decrease compared to last year's 27,533.

The year-to-date worldwide MINI sales registered 117,694 units, 1.5 percent less than in the same period of 2012 (119,538 units).

“Our vehicle portfolio continues to be in strong demand and once again our sales volume rose to an all-time high last month. We could offset the headwinds in Europe through solid gains in other markets such as the U.S., China, Japan and Russia," said Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management, Sales and Marketing BMW, in Munich on Monday.

"We expect further successful months ahead, assisted by the launch of exceptional new products such as the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo on the 15th June and the newly modified BMW 5 Series in July,” he then added, regarding the group's future plans.
