We’ve recently talked about BMW’s all-time sales record reported for the first six months of 2011. The last month was also the most profitable ever with 165,855 units sold, an increase of almost 16% comparing to the same period of the last year. The Asian market returned an increase of 47,3% in the first half of 2011 followed by the U.S. with 18,7% and Europe with 12,3%. Even these figures are nothing but great, BMW Group claims that the following six months should continue this increasing trend.
BMW’s Sales Chief Ian Robertson claimed that the second half of 2011 should bring a new increase in sales for the Chinese market, however not that significant as the increase of the first six months, which was somewhere around 60%.
