BMW and Mercedes set sales records

BMW Group and Mercedes-Benz started the year with worldwide sales records. After a bad year due to the corona crisis, things are now better than ever at both German manufacturers.

Mercedes-Benz sold 600,000 cars in the first quarter, increasing sales by more than 20 percent compared to last year in the first quarter. Sales of the BMW Group’s various brands, BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce, increased by more than a third to more than 600,000 units in the first quarter.

The high quarterly figures of the manufacturers are partly caused by explosive demand from China. The number of deliveries from BMW to China almost doubled. The new plug-in hybrid and fully electric cars are also driving sales figures. Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler, for example, expects to deliver more than 100,000 fully electric cars this year.

Last year, Daimler saw sales fall by 11 percent to € 154.3 billion. Sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles shrank by 15 percent to a total of more than 2.8 million units due to the crisis. BMW Group recorded a sales decline of 8.4 percent in 2020.
