The X3, produced in Greer by BMW Manuacturing Co., helped BMW Group sales set a record for November and year-to-date compared to its record-setting 2011.

 

The demand for the X3, produced at Greer’s BMW Manufacturing Co., is one of the growth drivers for the company’s world wide record-setting sales in November. It was also the best first 11 months for the company, with sales up 10.1 percent compared to the same period last year.

The X3 had strong sales with 14,653 units delivered in November, a 28.6 percent increase (previous year 115,106). More than 250,000 X3 vehicles have been delivered to customers since its launch in November 2010.

Sales for BMW Group were 23 percent higher than November 2011. BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce brand automobiles totaled 1,664,088 vehicles were sold compared to last year’s 1,510,857. That is just 4,894 short of the total number of vehicles sold in 2011.

“Our attractive product portfolio continues to be in strong demand right across the globe and we have achieved another record month in sales”, read a statement by Ian Robertson, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Sales and Marketing BMW.

“The success of our models proves the strength of our premium brands and that we are building the vehicles people desire. We posted solid gains in many of our markets last month and we aim to continue the momentum. This puts our record sales target for 2012 well within reach and we will once again be the number one premium car company worldwide.”
