Beside the new powerful BMW cars, Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management at BMW AG, also presented the BMW numbers for 2015, the – as we know now – most successful year in BMW history.
So the full-year sales of the BMW Group went up 6.1% to a total of 2,247,485 cars sold worldwide. BMW cars increased 5.2% to a total of 1,905,234 cars, MINI sales achieve a 12.0% increase to total 338,466. Overall there were also 30,000 BMW i vehicles sold in 2015.
Beside the BMW M2 and the BMW X4 M40i was the BMW 2002 turbo a star on the stage. As the Oldtimer wrote history to position BMW as a sporty car-manufacturer in the US, the new BMW M2 is set in the tradition of the beauty back from the old times. Also, the BMW 2002 turbo was the first car of a german manufacturer featuring a turbo engine.
