Post BMW U.S. Group reports sales up for past month (for first time this year)

As reported on Bimmerpost Homepage.

BMW GROUP U.S. DIVISION REPORTS SEPTEMBER 2009 SALES

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – October 1, 2009... For the first time this year, the BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported an increase in sales compared to the same month last year. In September, sales increased by 3.6 percent to 19,175 units compared to 18,506 vehicles sold in September 2008. The BMW Group also reported a year-to-date sales volume of 179,219 vehicles, down 24.2 percent, compared to 236,327 vehicles sold in the first nine months of last year.

BMW Brand Sales
Sales of BMW brand vehicles increased 2.1 percent in September for a total of 15,047 vehicles compared to 14,744 vehicles reported in the same month a year ago driven by strong passenger car sales. BMW’s sports activity vehicles saw a decline compared to last year in part due to limited inventory of the X5 after the better than expected Advanced Diesel X5 model sales volume. Year-to-date, BMW brand sales were down 26.3 percent to 144,223 vehicles compared to 195,633 vehicles sold in the same period of 2008.

“For now, we’ll take this first small bit of good news but the premium segment is not out of the woods yet as consumers keep on reacting cautiously to the mixed signals in the economy,” said Jim O’Donnell, President of BMW of North America, LLC. “For BMW, we expect the bumpy road to continue into next quarter in advance of 2010, when we see consumer confidence improving and a major launch of new BMW products start to hit the market.”

Z4 sales have to be disappointing. . .new model and still lower tha last year. Its got to be the big price increase, because the car is so much nicer.

every passenger car but the Z4 is up for this month basically. Its good news for now. The one series sales are quite impressive, and im not surprised by the sales of the Z4. Its too much of a nice car for this market - later on im sure it will kick up, especially in december.

The Z4 is going to have trouble period. I'm just shocked how high the price is when fully loaded ($70,000). Even modestly equipped, the S-drive 35i is 60 grand.

It's a nice car without question. But that pricing is just ridiculous, especially when you consider the price of a previous Z4 or M coupe and roadster, base or fully loaded, it never came close to what BMW is charging for this car. It just doesn't seem worth it.

You pay property tax on your car? What state is this?

+1.

Either BMW is consciously going for hi-price/low volume, or they're shooting themselves in the foot with their latest pricing on a number of cars: Z4, 335d & X6 come to mind.

Is there any way to get the sales figures per model? I am particularly interested in M3 sales.
