While MINI sales in the US are still rebounding from production and EPA delays, worldwide figures continue to rise. MINI achieved its best October sales ever. A total of 28,834 vehicles were delivered to customers worldwide, an increase of 13.4% compared to the same month last year (25,420).
Sales of the core MINI three-door model (the F56) leapt 53.7% compared to last October (15,920 / prev. yr. 10,361). Year-to-date MINI sales still reflect the model change earlier this year; deliveries total 236,363, down 5.3% on the first ten months of last year (249,702).
Overall demand for BMW Group vehicles increased in October with global sales for the month higher than ever before. A total of 184,297 BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce vehicles were delivered worldwide (prev. yr. 165,854 / +11.1%).

Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Sales and Marketing BMW said, “We are seeing good sales development across the model range and all sales regions have recorded positive growth in October. This record month means we are well on track to achieve our target of selling more than two million vehicles by the end of the year.”
