BMW sales rose 9.1pc in July

The world's leading luxury auto maker, BMW, said Monday that its sales rose 9.1 percent in July from the equivalent figure last year, and confirmed a rebound in key markets, including Germany.
BMW sold a total of 119,982 vehicles under its BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce nameplates, a statement said.
"We saw significant growth again in July," sales director Ian Robertson was quoted as saying. "We are reaping the benefits not only of the global economic recovery but also of customers' positive response to our vehicles."
Mini deliveries were down by 5.4 percent at 18,241 however owing to imminent launches of new models by the British manufacturer, the statement said.
A breakdown of BMW's main markets showed a 10.1 percent increase in US sales and a leap of 52.1 percent in Asia, owing to sustained demand in China.
Even in Germany, where sales have been persistently weak in recent months, the group delivered 3.6 percent more automobiles in July while domestic rival Daimler, which owns Mercedes-Benz, reported a slight drop of 1.8 percent.
