BMW Group in the UK achieved its best ever sales in March with both BMW and MINI brands setting new UK records. In total 37, 887 BMW and MINI vehicles were registered, an increase of 12 per cent over March 2014. The BMW brand accounted for 26,925 sales and MINI sold 10,962 vehicles, MINI’s best monthly sales performance since the vehicle’s UK launch in July 2001. Both brands also achieved new quarterly sales records with 40,024 BMWs and 14,961 MINIs sold in the first three months of 2015.

 

BMW Group achieved a market share of 7.68 per cent of the total UK car market in March (BMW 5.46 per cent and MINI 2.22 per cent) bolstered by the introduction of the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and Convertible, the BMW 4 Series Convertible and Gran Coupé, and MINI models including the MINI Hatch 3 and 5-door vehicles.

 

“BMW Group has had a great start to the year breaking records with both its BMW and MINI brands in the UK with sales of nearly 38,000 vehicles in March and 55,000 vehicles in the first quarter. We have seen strong sales growth driven by particularly high demand for new models launched in both the BMW 2 Series and 4 Series ranges,” said Graeme Grieve, Chief Executive Officer of BMW Group UK. 

 

“The iconic MINI is also celebrating its highest ever monthly and quarterly sales result thanks to strong performances from the new 3 and 5-door Hatch models. We are attracting new customers to both brands with our exciting new model portfolio and we have also been working closely with our retailers to ensure our retail environment reflects changing consumer needs,” concluded Grieve.
