BMW MINI October 2018 US Sales. Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 0.2 percent in October 2018 for a total of 23,262, compared to 23,208 vehicles sold in October 2017. Year-to-date, the BMW brand is up 2.0 percent on sales of 248,327 vehicles compared to 243,383 sold in the first ten months of 2017.

“There’s no question the U.S. is becoming a tougher sales market, so for BMW to mark 12 straight months of sales gains in the U.S. is a solid accomplishment,” said Bernhard Kuhnt, President and CEO, BMW of North America. “With only two months remaining in the year, November is important for BMW as the all-new and much anticipated X5 will go on sale, joining the very popular X3 in the marketplace.”

BMW’s lineup of Sports Activity Vehicles accounted for 47 percent of BMW brand sales in October 2018. For the eighth consecutive month, the BMW X3 was the top-selling BMW model in the U.S.
