X5 was a bright spot for BMW in July sales
The Greer manufactured X5 was a bright spot in July as BMW reported its brand sales decreased 14.8 percent.

The X5 increased 8.8 percent to 2,986 vehicles.

Brand sales reported a total of 21,965 compared to 25,777 vehicles sold in July 2016.

Year-to-date, the BMW brand is down 4.6 percent in the U.S. on sales of 171,051 vehicles compared to 179,213 sold in the first seven months of 2016.

“Sedans made something of a comeback in July even as the dog days and summer vacations had their effect on the pace of business,” said Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “The new BMW 5 Series continues gaining as availability improves. The highly popular BMW X3 is now undergoing model changeover and we are looking forward to the market launch of the all-new model later this year.”
