BMW registrations increase in 2007

The number of BMW vehicles registered in 2007 has increased, it has been reported.

Some 121,575 BMW and 47,661 Mini-branded cars were taken out by consumers over the course of the year – a ten per cent rise on 2006, the company has announced.

It added that 94 per cent of the BMWs sold in the UK during 2007 came with EfficientDynamics technology designed to make the vehicle more environmentally friendly.

Jim O’Donnell, managing director of BMW in the UK commented on the success of the eco-conscious models.

He said: "The introduction of a range of cars equipped with EfficientDynamics features helped us to consolidate our position as the leading manufacturer of premium vehicles."

One BMW driver who will not be using his car for the first month-and-a-half of 2008 is boxer Amir Khan.

The athlete, 21, has been banned from the road after being caught travelling at more than 140 mph on the M62.
