Richmond Hill, ON. BMW Group Canada (BMW and MINI brands combined) reported sales of 10,088 vehicles for the second quarter of 2023, an increase of nearly 10% compared to Q2 2022.

“Together with our retail partners, we’re celebrating a very strong close to the second quarter of 2023,” said David George, president and CEO, BMW Group Canada.  “The superior quality and exceptional innovation of our electrified portfolio is undeniable.  The BMW 7 Series has always offered unparalleled luxury.  Now, the all-electric BMW i7 pairs that luxury with emission-free driving.  The BMW i4 and iX continue to impress Canadians, and the all-new BMW XM is making an impact, as well.  It’s wonderful to see Canadians are as passionate about our electric models as we are.”

BMW.
The BMW brand recorded sales of 8,799 units in the second quarter of 2023, an increase of 4.5% over Q2 2022.  The passenger car segment saw a 21% increase over the same period last year as well, with models such as the BMW 2 Series, BMW 3 Series and BMW i4 enjoying gains compared to Q2 2022.  The flagship BMW 7 Series – with its newly-available all-electric powertrain and complete redesign both inside and out – performed exceptionally well in the second quarter, more than tripling its sales figures from the same period in 2022. 

Sales of electrified vehicles for the premium brand were up significantly, increasing 47.3% compared to Q2 2022.  Luxury models and performance vehicles also grew in volume, up 7.2% and 3.9% respectively (GKL segment and total BMW M sales).   

The ultra-exclusive BMW XM, which began sales in the Canadian market in the first quarter of 2023, continues to make an impact with its confident styling and hybrid drivetrain.
