Sales were driven by the continued popularity of the brand’s top-end cars as well as the introduction of new generation models. In total, 31,788 BMWs and MINIs were sold in 2017.

The BMW M760Li model saw outstanding sales in its first ever year and customer demand exceeded production capacity in the region. It was also a very positive year for the new BMW 5 Series, which had a sales boost of 56 per cent in 2017 compared to the previous year. The X models were the most popular, contributing to around 55 per cent of total sales, with the BMW X5 being the top-seller.
