BMW On Course For Full-Year Sales Record
Car maker BMW AG says its sales were up 2.7 percent in November compared with a year earlier, putting the company on course for a record year thanks to strong demand in China and the United States.
The company said Tuesday that the BMW Group, which also includes the Mini and Rolls-Royce brands, sold 174,996 cars worldwide last month. Between January and November, it sold nearly 1.78 million cars—a 6.8 percent gain over the first 11 months of 2012.
While sales in Europe slipped 0.3 percent in the January-November period, they rose 19.7 percent in China and 9.2 percent in the United States.
