BMW Enjoys Positive Sales Performance in September
Earlier this week, BMW Group U.S. reported that the company had sold 25,571 BMW brand vehicles in the United States throughout the month of September for a 9.7 percent sales improvement over September 2016 results. Running counter to the current demand for SUVs, BMW revealed that passenger cars drove the month's performance.
The 5 Series gained a more-than-impressive 144.4 percent sales increase over last September's results, and the 4 Series saw sales jump 58.9 percent with 3,637 vehicles sold. From one extreme to the other, sales of the all-electric i3 improved 37.6 percent while the X5 Sports Activity Vehicle was up 6.0 percent with 3,975 vehicles sold.
In a press release, Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America, stated, "The hot summer has given way to autumn and an uptick in sales, fueled in part by continued strong demand for the new 5 Series, as well as demand in Texas and Florida where customers are now replacing their flood and hurricane damaged vehicles. We are also anticipating growth in our Sports Activity Vehicles as expansion at our X model plant in South Carolina means we’ll have more X5’s this month followed by the eagerly awaited introduction of the all-new X3 in November."
