Woodcliff Lake, NJ – August 1, 2012… The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported July sales of 27,152 vehicles, an increase of 4 percent from the 26,120 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago. Year-to-date, BMW Group is up 9.5 percent on sales of 185,715 in the first seven months of 2012 compared to 169,641 in the same period in 2011.
'High summer is typically a time for vacations rather than car buying which makes the July result satisfying, especially with the unsteady economy and the very short supply of new models in our dealerships,' said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America, LLC. 'August will be the tightest month as we complete the model year transition, so we're very much looking forward to September and Fall and the much stronger availability of our popular new models.'
