BMW's December China sales growth outpaces Audi, Mercedes-Benz

BMW Group, the third-largest luxury vehicle seller in China, posted a 21 percent year-on-year sales increase in December, outpacing the growth of German rivals Audi and Mercedes-Benz in the market.

BMW and Mini brand deliveries maintained double-digit growth for the fifth straight month in December, surging to 62,895 vehicles, BMW Group said.

The increase was led by two locally produced models -- the BMW 1 series and 5 series, BMW Group said without providing further details on its China sales.

In December, Audi deliveries slid 5.2 percent to 65,598 while Mercedes-Benz sales gained 3.7 percent to 49,907.

But for the year, BMW Group still lagged behind Audi and Mercedes-Benz in China sales. BMW delivered 639,953 vehicles in 2018 under the BMW and Mini brands in China, rising 7.7 percent from 2017.

For the year, Audi and Mercedes-Benz each posted 11 percent sales increases in China. Audi deliveries topped 663,000 while Mercedes-Benz sales reached 652,996.
