MINI Brand Sales

MINI USA reported sales of 5,228 automobiles in June, a new record for the month.  The June 2011 sales are an increase of 26% over the 4,149 sold in June, 2010.

“Fuel prices have moderated in the last month or so but we are still seeing an increase in MINI sales” said Jim McDowell, Vice President MINI USA.  “It’s not just the new Countryman that’s popular but the entry hardtop as well, telling me that more Americans are embracing small cars as a rational choice.”

Year-to-date, MINI sales in the U.S. are up 42.3% on volume of 29,816 compared to 20,953 in the first six months of 2010.  The January to June numbers are the highest achieved in that six month period since MINI was launched in the U.S. in 2002.
