Woodcliff Lake, NJ – July 1, 2016… Sales of BMW brand vehicles decreased 10.3 percent in June for a total of 28,855 compared to 32,176 vehicles sold in June, 2015.  Year-to-date, BMW brand is down 9.0 percent on sales of 153,436 compared to 168,623 sold in the first half of 2015.
 
Notable vehicle sales include the BMW 7 Series which increased 69.2 percent, the BMW 2 Series which increased 139.4 percent, and the BMW X3 which increased 69.5 percent.
 
“The mid-point to the year always brings some uncertainly about what may be ahead in the second half, so I’m very pleased to see several of our key models showing strong results in June,” said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “The X1 and X3 are indicative of the still growing trend toward Sports Activity Vehicles, but the numbers also show that great cars like the BMW 7 Series and 2 Series have a strong appeal and following.”
