The second place is taken by the Audi carmaker, with the company to grow its seven-month sales by 11%, meaning 1.01 million units to be sold.
From the third place, the Mercedes-Benz only managed to increase its deliveries for the same seven-month period by 13%, meaning 920,000 units sold.
But right now, the differences between the three uncrowned kings is extremely low and BMW will have to reflect on the gaps that are filled up by Audi and Mercedes-Benz.
