BMW maintains double-digit growth behind locally built X3
Automotive News China | 2018/12/21

BMW Groups sales in China have advanced more than 10 percent four straight months on demand for the newly launched, locally produced BMW X3 crossover. 

In November, the German luxury carmaker delivered 60,990 vehicles under the BMW and Mini brands, a jump of 10.3 percent from a year earlier. 

In the first 11 months of the year, combined sales at the two brands increased 6.4 percent to 577,058. 

BMW Group didnt additional details on its China sales. But according to the China Passenger Car Alliance, a Shanghai consultancy, the Germany companys local sales growth was led by the domestically built BMW X3, which went on sale in July. 

In November, BMW Brilliance Automotive, BMWs joint venture with Brilliance China Automotive Holdings, delivered 8,250 BMW X3s. Sales of the crossover topped 29,000 through November. 

While gaining momentum, BMW still lags behind Mercedes-Benz and Audi in year-to-date China sales. 

In November, Mercedes-Benz deliveries rose 2.6 percent from a year earlier to 52,151. For the year, Mercedes sales now tally 603,089, an increase of 12 percent from the first eleven months of 2017.

Last month, Audi sales rose 2.7 percent to 57,721. Its year-to-date deliveries total 597,451, a rise of 13 percent from a year earlier.
