Richmond Hill, ON.  BMW Group Canada (BMW and MINI brands combined) reported its best-ever Q1 results with sales of 9,467 vehicles. This result represents an increase of +5.1% compared to 2017.

 

“Achieving success in the opening three months of the year is critical for generating positive sales momentum.  I’m very thankful to our retail network and sales associates whose commitment to success has delivered our best-ever start to a sales year,” commented Hans Blesse, president and CEO, BMW Group Canada.  “Our record-setting 2018 sales results confirm Canadian customers approve of our new design language, extensive range of Sports Activity Vehicles, and the experiences they are receiving with our retail partners.”

 

“We’ve never been better positioned for the spring buying season,” continued Blesse.  “The product offensive launched by Strategy NUMBER ONE>NEXT is in full swing.  Over the last five months, we have launched nine all-new or completely revised models.  From the BMW M5, a car independent testers are claiming to be the fastest sedan they’ve ever driven, to the first-ever BMW X2, a Sports Activity Coupe of radical design and matching performance, we have the hottest segments of the premium market covered.  With the ultra-luxurious BMW X7 and BMW 8 Series Coupe still to come this year, there has never been a better time to be a BMW customer.”
