BMW sales have increased for 13 consecutive months. That’s an amazing stat given the volatility in the US marketplace. In total sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 1.0 percent in November 2018 for a total of 28,330, compared to 28,049 vehicles sold in November 2017. Year-to-date, the BMW brand is up 1.9 percent on sales of 276,657 vehicles compared to 271,432 sold in the first eleven months of 2017.
“BMW sales growth in the U.S. reached another milestone as November marked our 13th straight month of sales increases in the U.S. with our expanding line of Sports Activity Vehicles once more leading the way,” said Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “The all-new BMW X5 delivered an extraordinary result in its first weeks on sale with the X3 and the 5 Series rounding out the month as our top sellers. This week, the all-new BMW X7, which debuted at the LA Auto Show last week, begins production at our manufacturing plant in South Carolina and will reach BMW showrooms in early 2019.”
BMW’s lineup of Sports Activity Vehicles accounted for 56 percent of BMW brand sales in November 2018. This was led by the all-new BMW X5 and BMW X3, which together represented one out of every three BMW vehicles sold in the U.S. in November. The crossover takeover seems to be complete.
BMW Sales: The New X5 Performing as Expected
For the ninth consecutive month, the BMW X3 was the top-selling BMW model in the U.S. – closely followed by the all-new BMW X5, which recently began arriving at BMW Centers across the U.S. and throughout the world. Last week, one special BMW X5 was driven in a straight line across the U.S., directly from the production line in Spartanburg, South Carolina to its debut on stage at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.
