The third generation of the X3 was unveiled last week as part of BMW's announcement of  its continued investment – $600 million and more than 1,000 jobs in next four years.

 

 

BMW sales of its X models produced in Greer showed an increase of 4.9 percent in June and an overall year-to-date total of 11.9 percent compared to the same month in 2016.

The highest sales were the X5 model at 4,589 units compared to the same month last year of 4,018 vehicles.

The X4, the newest model, increased the highest percentage, 37.8 percent, while the X3 fell off to minus 8.6 percent.

Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 0.4 percent in June for a total of 28,962 compared to 28,855 vehicles sold in June 2016. Year-to-date, the BMW brand is down 2.8 percent in the U.S. on sales of 149,086 vehicles compared to 153,436 sold in the first six months of 2016.

“The volatility that has characterized much of early 2017 is likely to continue through the second half of the year, requiring an even stronger focus on the quality of our business to achieve the desired results,” said Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America.
