BMW Reports Positive U.S. Sales Performance for September
BMW Group U.S. recently announced that 25,571 BMW brand vehicles were sold throughout September in the United States, resulting in a 9.7 percent sales improvement over last September's numbers. While current industry trends show a strong consumer demand for SUVs and trucks, BMW saw their passenger car segment fuel the month's performance.
With 3,718 vehicles sold, the 5 Series delivered a remarkable 144.4 percent sales gain over September 2016's results, with the 4 Series also scoring a significant sales improvement of 58.9 percent. As proof that BMW appeals to all manners of consumers, the all-electric i3 saw sales increase 37.6 percent while the X5 Sports Activity Vehicle turned in a 6.0 percent jump with 3,975 vehicles sold in September.
In a press release, Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America, noted, "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."
