Greer's BMW-produced vehicles pave way for best January sales

Published on Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Greer's BMW Manufacturing Co.-produced vehicles helped steer BMW Group to its best ever January sales. BMW reported sales last month of 96,183 vehicles, a 5.9 percent increase from the 90,858 sold the same time last year.

The BMW X5, X6 and X3 all showed increases. The X3 showed a 56 percent January increase with 9,348 vehicles sold (5,984 last year). The X5 has an 8.3 percent growth in sales with 8,872 units sold (8,194 last year) and X6 sales were up 5 percent to 3,372 (3,211 last year).

“We made a successful start to the new year, selling more BMW brand vehicles than ever before in the month of January. The BMW Group reported strong sales gains in the Asian and North American markets, among others,” said Ian Robertson, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Sales and Marketing. The new BMW 3 Series Sedan, scheduled for worldwide release in mid-February, will create positive impetus for growth going forward. “We expect the positive trend in sales to continue over the coming months. In fact, we anticipate even more dynamic growth in the second half of the year in light of the launch of additional new models,” added Robertson.

BMW announced last month it will invest $900 million at the Greer plant, produce the X4, a new line, and create 300 jobs.
