BMW Group U.S Sales Figures & Recent Highlights

The BMW Group is a global company with over 31 production and assembly facilities in 15 countries. It has a sales network in over 140 countries and employs over 120,000 people worldwide.

In terms of production, BMW has a major manufacturing plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, which produces a significant portion of its X series SUVs.

Some brand level highlights for BMW Group in the U.S

  1. BMW: The brand saw a steady increase in sales in the U.S. post the 2008-2009 economic downturn. In the years that followed, the X series of SUVs (especially the X3, X5, and the newer X7) have become particularly popular. The introduction of new electric models under the “i” sub-brand, such as the i4 and iX, marked BMW’s commitment to electrification in response to market demands.
  2. MINI: While MINI experienced a surge in popularity after its reintroduction in the early 2000s, its U.S. sales have faced challenges in recent years. The declining trend in small car sales in the U.S., coupled with the rise of SUVs, has affected the brand. However, MINI has tried to adapt by introducing larger models like the MINI Countryman.
  3. Rolls-Royce: The brand, known for its ultra-luxury vehicles, witnessed positive trends in the U.S., setting sales records in the years leading up to 2022. New models like the Cullinan, Rolls-Royce’s first SUV, contributed significantly to this success.
