WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 4, 2022--

BMW of North America today reported Q4 2021 and full year 2021 sales results for the BMW and MINI brands in the U.S.

BMW Brand

In the fourth quarter of 2021, BMW brand sales in the U.S. totaled 93,031 vehicles, a 5.8% decrease from the 98,750 vehicles sold in the fourth quarter of 2020. For the full year 2021, BMW brand sales increased 20.8% on total sales of 336,644 compared to the 278,732 vehicles sold in 2020.

While the automotive industry continues to navigate the challenges of the ongoing global pandemic and associated supply chain issues, BMW Group has once again shown a positive year of growth in the U.S. This was delivered on the strength of the company’s dynamic product portfolio, flexibility of its global production network, and strong dealer collaboration. The company and its network of dealer partners have worked together to manage inventory levels and fulfill strong customer demand for new vehicles. In the first quarter of 2022, BMW customers will begin to take the first deliveries of two all-new, fully-electric offerings – the BMW iX Sports Activity Vehicle and BMW i4 Gran Coupe.
