German automaker BMW states it achieved record sales of 2.49 million BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce vehicles in 2018.
“BMW Group achieved record sales in last year. 2.49 million vehicles mean the BMW Group is the world’s leading premium automotive company for the 15th year running,” CEO Harald Krueger stated.
Daimler has not yet released yearly sales figures for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars, so it is still not clear whether BMW brand overtook Mercedes-Benz in terms of sales in last year.
Sales of BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce cars were higher than Mercedes-Benz in 2017.
