BMW, the world’s biggest luxury car maker, has reported record sales in the first three months of this year, driven by booming demand for the Mini and Rolls-Royce marques. The company has also confirmed that sales in China overtook those in the US for the first time on record.
Ian Robertson, the board member for sales and marketing, confirmed: “BMW achieved an all-time high in sales last month and the best first quarter in its history. These outstanding results are due to our attractive, young model range and our strategy of healthy, balanced growth across the globe. We aim to continue the momentum with additional new models this year, such as the luxurious BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and a model revision of the flagship BMW 7 Series.”
