Perfect timing given our recent question. On que MINI sales achieved a new record for June with 39,443 units delivered around the world, an increase of 3.0% compared with the same month last year.

June rounded off the brand’s record first half year, with sales totalling 181,214 (+3.6%). “MINI continues to achieve sustainable growth in sales around the world,” said Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the BMW AG Board of Management responsible for MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad. “Sales of the new MINI Countryman are particularly pleasing and I’m delighted that with the launch in June of the MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4, electric mobility is now available on a large scale from the MINI brand.

Customer interest in this car has been extremely high and I’m confident we will see continued growth across the brand in the second half of the year,” he added.
