What Auto Slump? BMW Sees Another Record Year for Car Sales

BMW AG said last year was a record for car sales and 2020 could be better still as the German company looks to shrug off a sluggish European market and slumping demand in China.

The Munich-based company sold 2.52 million cars in 2019, said Pieter Nota, BMW’s sales head. The tally is a 1.2% increase over 2018, when 2.49 million BMWs, Minis and Rolls-Royces were bought.

“We look at the coming year with confidence and aim to increase sales again in 2020,” Nota said in a statement.
