How many times have we been over this? BMW is a Bavarian company, that means it’s located in Europe, particularly in Germany.
While the country’s economy seems to be going fine and dandy, the rest of the continent has less rosy bank statements.
That’s had an effect on the kind of sales just about every car maker in the world has had in Europe. BMW was no exception to this situation.
Happily though, the company’s sales in Asia and the United States more than made up for the drop on the old continent.
Therefore, the BMW Group delivered 156.957 vehicles in May. That means they’ve registered a year-on-year increase of 6.4 percent last month.
Adding those numbers in means that over the first five months of 2012 BMW, Mini and Rolls Royce delivered a total of 728.029 automobiles.
The overall bump is 9.1 percent, if that isn’t impressive enough, how does a bump of 60.000 units sound?
Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management, Sales and Marketing BMW went on to state what we know for being the obvious.
This was a record for BMW’s history in May and that the company is looking forward to a similar situation this month.
Since we spoke of the Asian influence in these results, that’s where BMW’s Group sold 41.289 units in May. The US was accounted with buying some 35.127 vehicles as well.
