Email   small font medium font large font


BMW sales rose by 9.2 per cent last year, with buyers snapping up its luxury sedans and the speedy Mini, the carmaker said Wednesday.

The Munich-based company _ whose brands include BMW, Mini and Maybach _ sold 1.5 million cars last year, compared with 1.37 million in 2006, it said.

``We have completely reached our sales target for 2007 _ growth in the higher single-digit percentage range,'' said Stefan Krause, who oversees sales and marketing for BMW.

BMW brand sales increased by 7.7 per cent to 1,276,793, compared with 1,185,088 in 2006.

Sales of the Mini jumped by 18.5 per cent to 222,875 cars, compared with 188,077 the previous year.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars saw an increase of 25.5 per cent with 1,010 of its luxurious Phantoms sold, compared with 805 a year earlier.

BMW's motorcycle business grew as well, just surpassing 100,000 for the first time with a rise of 2.7 per cent.
