The new X5, the third generation manufactured in Greer, began its sales cycle today.

 

The new BMW X5, manufactured in Greer, begins its sales cycle just as BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported an 8.3 percent sales increase for September.

“October means arrival of the new X5, a full month for the new 4 Series, and the full range of new diesel engines in our 3 and 5 Series cars; just a few of the reasons why we are excited about the next three months,” said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America.

The new X5 began its third generation of production on Aug. 1.

The X5 SAV, assembled in Greer, was among the brand’s best performing vehicles, up 21.7 percent to 4,686 units.

Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 8.3 percent in September for a total of 23,568 compared to 21,761 vehicles sold in September 2012. Year-to-date, the BMW brand is up 14.0 percent on sales of 212,565 compared to 186,397 sold in the first nine months of 2012.
