The increased demand for luxury cars such as the new X7 and electrified BMW models like X5 xDrive45e have also contributed to the record results in October 2019.

In a highly competitive segment, MINI brand sales from January to October totalled 288,613 units worldwide (-2.3%). Sales for the month of October were lower, at 27,589 units (-6.2%).

In the Motorad division, a total of 149,577 BMW motorcycles and maxi scooters were delivered to customers around the globe (+7.0%). October sales were down 3.1%, at 12,645 units.

BMW says,

“Our model offensive continues to have a positive impact. We were able to achieve new all-time sales highs for October and the first ten months of the year,”





In the Rolls-Royce division, a total of 3,777 units were sold worldwide between January and September accounting for a 42 percent increase in demand. This figure is over 1,000 more than the 2,659 sold by Rolls-Royce in the same period in 2018.

With a total of 455 Phantom, 522 Ghost, 1020 Wraith/Dawn and 1,780 Cullinan sold in the first nine months, the Cullinan, which was only on sale from the beginning of the year, is now a best-seller.

BMW Group said that interest in the Cullinan has forced Rolls-Royce motors to work day and night to fulfill orders. The SUV is now available in the more powerful and ultra-luxurious Black Badge version.
