BMW 5-Series Sales Figures


BMW 5 Series Sales Reports

U.S & Canada Auto Sales for BMW 5-Series

Here you will find monthly and yearly U.S. sales figures for the BMW 5-Series. The 5 Series is BMW’s midsize luxury sedan, positioned between the big selling 3 Series and the high tech 7 Series. The 5 Series has always been a favorite at GoodCarBadCar for its balance of comfort, space, technology and performance. The fact that you could drive any generation 5 Series to the office during the week, ferry the kids to events on weekends and take it for an aggressive drive Sunday mornings was the secret to its success. The BMW 5 Series is new for the 2017 model year so we’re keen to see whether BMW got it right again and whether it continues to be a sales leader in the now crowded and competitive midsize luxury segment.

Our Take On BMW 5-Series Sales Numbers

The BMW 5 Series has always been a big seller and solid performer for BMW. In the U.S BMW 5 Series sales hovered between 50k and 55k units per year from 2011 to 2014 (Canada sales were 2k to 3k annually during the same period). In 2015 things went downhill with volumes dropping from 52,704 in 2014 to 44,162 in 2015. Things got worse from there with 2016 coming in at 32,408 sales, the lowest sales volume since we started tracking back 2002. In 2017 it looks like things might be picking up, with the BMW 5 Series showing strong gains for several straight months through end of August. BMW 5 Series August sales increased 37.6 percent to 3,587 vehicles in the month of August, up almost 1,000 units vs last August.

This is largely being driven by the BMW 5 Series which launched in February in the U.S. The BMW 5 Series is new for the 2017 model year. The 528i model is gone, replaced by the 530i that has a bit more power and is a little lighter. The turbo-six option called the 540i is now good for 335 hp, and there’s also a 530e plug-in hybrid coming and, most likely, an M550i model. The cabin has been updated with 16-way-power-adjustable front seats, a 10.3-inch infotainment system with nav, Gesture Control and optional Apple CarPlay.

The new 5 Series delivers sophisticated, user-friendly technology with class leading performance, engines and driving abilities. The real question is whether that is enough to help the venerable 5-Series capture market share in what is a smaller pie in a very competitive segment.
