Strong BMW Sales in October, Year to Date

We're coming to the end of the year and as seems to happen every year it's good to take a look at how the year has gone for all of us, and not just for your Sherman Oaks BMW dealers here at Center BMW, but also for the folks who build the BMW vehicles we know and love and the auto industry as a whole. And as it turns out 2015 has thus far been a good year with BMW posting sales increases of 4.6 percent compared to last year on sales of 279,395 BMW vehicles, as recorded in the automaker's recent October 2015 vehicle sales reports.


BMW posted strong sales this year in part due to their outstanding X vehicle lineup of Sports Activity Vehicle® models like the 2016 BMW X3 and 2016 BMW X5 models, which we explored a bit more in depth recently in this space.


BMW reported the popular and versatile, agile and fun to drive 2016 BMW X3 posted sales increases of 88.1 percent during October 2015 on sales of 3,028 vehicles. The 2016 BMW X3 boasts an agile chassis and available rear-wheel drive or xDrive All-Wheel Drive drivetrains, as well as the classic looks that turn heads.


The automaker's luxurious and spacious 2016 BMW X5 SAV® also recorded strong sales during October 2015, gaining 27.9 percent compared to the same month last year on sales of 4,292 vehicles. The 2016 BMW X5 takes the SUV experience to entirely new levels of both luxury and capability, boasting available leather trim and an optional rear seat entertainment system, as well as 66 cubic feet of available cargo space.


According to Ludwig Willisch, BMW of North America President and CEO, "Trends in the luxury vehicle market are becoming more evident with the October sales another indicator of how important Sports Activity Vehicles are becoming to our market segment... With the all-new BMW X1 just now going on sale and availability of the always popular X3 and X5 improving, we expect good growth in the final two months of the year."


There's still a bit more than a month left this year, but by all accounts it looks like the year will close out well for everyone -- not just for BMW, but also for those who come in to our Sherman Oaks BMW dealership to check out and maybe drive home in a new BMW car of their own. So stop in to Center BMW today to check them out!
