BMW Group U.S. Reports September 2013 Sales

October 1, 2013

BMW brand sales up 8.3 percent
MINI brand sales up 8.3 percent, best September ever
BMW Motorcycle sales up 20.9 percent

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – October 1, 2013…
The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported September sales of 28,874 vehicles, an increase of 8.3 percent from the 26,660 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago. Year-to-date, the BMW Group (BMW and MINI combined) is up 11.6 percent on sales of 262,200 in the first nine months of 2013 compared to 234,928 in the same period in 2012.

“September was unusual because of significantly fewer selling days than August, so the more than 8% increase for BMW and another record month for MINI are further fueling BMW Group momentum going into the final quarter of the year,” said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “October means arrival of the new X5, a full month for the new 4 Series, and the full range of new diesel engines in our 3 and 5 Series cars; just a few of the reasons why we are excited about the next three months.”

BMW Brand Sales

Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 8.3 percent in September for a total of 23,568 compared to 21,761 vehicles sold in September, 2012. Year-to-date, the BMW brand is up 14.0 percent on sales of 212,565 compared to 186,397 sold in the first nine months of 2012.

In September, best performing vehicles included the 7 Series, up 271.3 percent to 1,723 units; the X5 SAV, up 21.7 percent to 4,686 units; and the X1, up 17.5 percent to 1,844 units.

BMW Pre-Owned Vehicles

In September, sales of BMW used vehicles (including certified pre-owned and pre-owned) increased 1.9 percent to 13,877 vehicles compared to the 13,624 vehicles sold in September, 2012. January through September, BMW used vehicle sales are up 7.8 percent on volume of 132,136 compared to 122,576 in the same period of 2012.

MINI Brand Sales – best September ever

MINI USA reported the best September ever with sales of 5,306 automobiles, an increase of 8.3 percent from the 4,899 sold in the same month a year ago. Year-to-date, MINI sales in the U.S. are up 2.3 percent on volume of 49,635 compared to 48,531 in the first nine months of 2012.

MINI Pre-Owned Vehicles

In September, MINI used automobiles (including MINI NEXT certified pre-owned and pre-owned) reported sales of 1,701 automobiles, a decrease of 0.7 percent from the 1,713 sold in September, 2012. However, January through September, MINI used vehicle sales are up 17.9 percent on volume of 16,181 compared to 13,728 in the same period of 2012.

Probably production constraints at the plant since they are gearing up for the X4.

^ Ah okay.


On another note, when did the 'thumbs up/down' buttons debut? It's long overdue! So cool!

Hopefully new X5 and 3/4 series will contribute well

CLA arrived for Merc, or their total sales would have decreased from '12. 4 Series just arriving for BMW, give it a couple months to even out.

+1

C class and ML got killed by 3er and X5. Considering X5 is on it's way out and ML is a brand new design, it can't be good in the long run for MB

Title correction

The BimmerPost News item title "BMW Brand U.S. Sales Up 8.3 Percent in Best September Ever" is in error. This was not BMW's best September, although it was an excellent month. As shown in paragraph 6, it was the best September for BMW's MINI USA only.

No error. They sold more BMW's than they did in 09/12, which was more than they sold in 09/11, which was more than 09/10, etc. they sold 8.3% more cars than last year. So...best September ever.
