BMW is reporting fourth-quarter sales of 98,750 vehicles, which is only two percent down from the 100,797 vehicles sold in the same period of 2019. For the year as a whole, however, vehicle sales decreased by 17.5 percent for a total of 278,732 units compared to the 338,003 of 2019.
Mini sales dropped by 3.6 percent year on year and totaled 8,864 vehicles. Overall sales for the year reached 28,138, a 22.4 percent decline compared to the 36,272 vehicles sold in 2019. BMW says that its sales in the US “improved significantly” over the second half of the year and puts this recovery partly down to increased production at Plant Spartanburg that helped meet the demand for X3, X5, and X7 SUVs.
