global MINI sales for November 2010

From BMW Group PressClub USA:

MINI brand sales increased 19.3% in November to reach a total of 20,552 vehicles (prev. yr. 17,223). In the year to the end of November, 208,830 units (+5.4%; prev. yr. 198,203) were sold. The MINI Countryman also got off to an excellent start. Within two months of its market launch, it has become a major sales driver for the brand. With deliveries of 4,165 units, every fifth MINI sold in November was a Countryman.

The MINI Countryman – and the successful BMW X family – are at the forefront of the continuing trend towards innovative crossover and sports activity vehicles, characterized on the one hand by their everyday drivability, versatility and all-road capabilities and, on the other, by the feeling of safety their raised seating position affords. In the meantime, every fourth vehicle sold by the BMW Group is a sports activity vehicle.
