BMW continues to increase sales. In April, the Munich-based car maker was able to achieve an increase of almost 15 percent compared to the same month last year.
BMW increased its sales by double digits in April. 116,391 BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce cars have been sold worldwide - almost 15 percent more than in the same month last year, the company announced on Monday. From January to April inclusive, BMW increased sales by 14 percent.
Double-digit sales growth
Thanks to the recovery in demand, BMW had also posted double-digit sales increases in each of the previous months. In April, BMW bucked the downward trend in its home market of Germany and increased the number of deliveries by a good 7 percent to 25,593 BMW and Mini brand vehicles. In the USA, 9 percent more BMW and Mini went to customers and in Asia the number of cars sold rose by around 65 percent compared to the same month last year.
The increases were particularly high in China and Brazil, where sales more than doubled. "We want to continue to grow strongly in China and sell more than 120,000 vehicles in 2010," said BMW sales director Ian Robertson. In 2010 BMW will remain the world's leading premium manufacturer. "It remains to be seen, however, to what extent the economic upturn in many markets is self-supporting and sustainable."
17 percent for core brand
At the core brand BMW, sales improved by almost 17 percent in April to 98,494 units. The white and blue carmaker posted particularly strong growth in the Z4 Roadster and the 7 series. But the company was also able to sell 13.4 percent more of the high-volume 3 series. In April, sales of the Mini small car increased by 2.3 percent to 17,718 units. This segment was much less affected by the downward trend last year, so things are now going accordingly less steeply. At Rolls-Royce, 179 luxury cars were handed over to customers in April, after 51 in the same month last year. (dpa)
