The BMW Group has announced last month was the best-selling September in the company's existence.

It was only a couple of days ago when Mercedes-Benz announced September was the firm's best-selling month ever (shifted 142,994 cars), and now BMW says it was their most profitable September ever. BMW (excluding MINI, Rolls-Royce and motorcycle division) managed to deliver 158,029 cars last month which represents a 7.6 percent increase compared to September 2012 when they sold 146,852 cars. The increase has mostly to do with 3-Series sales which jumped by 13.9 percent from 39,304 to 44,752 cars.

So far this year the Bavarian marque sold 1,209,598 cars which translate into a nine percent sales jump thanks to an increase in demand (aside from 3-Series) especially for X1, X3, but also for 5-Series and 6-Series models.

MINI also recorded its best-ever September by selling 31,313 cars (up by 2.5 percent), while BMW Motorrad reached an all-time high in September by selling 9,265 units (0.5 percent hike).

Rolls-Royce was the only branch of the conglomerate who failed to post an increase in sales so far this year as they delivered 2,300 units in the first three quarters of 2013, compared to Q1-Q3 2012 when they sold 1.1 percent more cars (2,326 units). However, Rolls Royce's September sales were up by 0.5 percent compared to the same month of 2012.

A more detailed situation can be found in the attached press release.
