Posted Image

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI brands combined) reported year-to-date sales of 229,833 vehicles, an increase of 2 percent over the 225,641 vehicles sold in the first three quarters of 2005. September sales were off 7 percent, with the Group reporting 23,303 vehicles over the 25,079 reported in 2005.

BMW Brand Sales Increase 3 Percent Year-to-date

BMW brand sales were up 3 percent year-to-date, to 200,063 vehicles

compared to 193,631 vehicles sold in the same period in 2005.

BMW brand sales were down 8 percent in September for a total of 20,339

vehicles compared to 22,052 reported in the same month a year ago.

BMW Automobile Sales

Sales of BMW brand automobiles were up 11 percent in the first three

quarters of 2006, to 155,525 automobiles over 140,015 in the same period of

2005. Automobile sales dipped 2 percent in September to 15,275 cars versus

15,609 in the same month a year ago.

BMW Sports Activity Vehicle Sales

Sales of BMW Sports Activity Vehicles were down 21 percent in

September, to 5,064 vehicles over the 6,443 sold in the same month last

year, as BMW prepares to introduce its all-new X5 Sports Activity Vehicles

later this year. The new X3 Sports Activity Vehicles just went on sale,

too, and inventories of both brands are low as a result. Year-to-date,

sales of BMW Sports Activity Vehicles were also off 17 percent, to 44,538

vehicles compared to the 53,616 sold in the same period in 2005.

Certified Pre-Owned

Sales of BMW's Certified Pre-Owned vehicles were up 3 percent, and the

company reported its best September ever, with sales of 5,913 CPO vehicles

versus 5,760 vehicles reported last year. Year-to-date, CPO sales were up

16 percent, to 64,042 over the 55,380 reported in the same period in 2005.

MINI Brand

MINI Automobiles

MINI USA reported September sales of 2,964 automobiles, off 2 percent

from the 3,027 cars sold last September. Year-to-date, the division

reported sales of 29,770 automobiles, a drop of 7 percent, compared to the

32,010 cars reported in the first three quarters of 2005. The MINI factory

in Oxford was closed for part of August in preparation for the new model

year, resulting in extremely low inventories of MINI automobiles.
