The BMW brand has revealed how many vehicles it has sold over the past nine months of 2021, with the Munich car manufacturer registering a total sales figure of more than 1.7 million units worldwide, resulting in a 19.3 per cent increase in total sales.

Of the aforementioned sales figure (1 703 080 to be exact), the German brand’s SAVs (sports activity vehicles) and SACs (sports activity coupés) proved particularly strong across their respective segments, with BMW registering a total SAV and SAC sales figure of 764 958 units. The latter amounted to a 20.6 percent increase in sales.

BMW M GmbH, meanwhile, registered a total sales figure of 123 008 from the start of the year to the end of September 2021. This amounted to a 22.2 per cent increase in sales of the firm’s M and M Performance products. According to BMW, the success of the M3 and M4 high-performance models, which were introduced in March continued, while the X5 M and X6 M once again made a major contribution to this sales success. Alongside the successful M340 derivatives, the M440 coupé and convertible were the main growth drivers of the company’s M Performance offerings.
