BMW Group says it achieved another record month in sales last month, with growth in many regions around the world.

With 177,716 (previous year 159,223) BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce vehicles delivered worldwide, sales were 11.6% higher than in the same month last year. It was also the best first nine months for the company, with sales up 8.3% compared to the same period last year.

A total of 1,335,502 BMW Group vehicles were delivered during this time (previous year 1,232,619).

“We made solid gains in many of our markets last month and were once again able to achieve record sales in September, despite the difficult environment in some European countries,” said BMW board member, Ian Robertson.

“Our models continue to perform well and we expect to see further healthy growth in worldwide sales in the fourth quarter. We are well on course to achieving a new sales record for the whole year.”
