what's surprising is how almost every automaker is having declining sales for the past month, yet BMW isn't. I guess their refreshed lineup G01/G05/G06/G20 etc are helping a lot

Wow. Speaking as a retailer, 6% up on the month and 3.3% YTD are great results, in any consumer industry.

I've always wondered if these monthly sales posts include M vehicles. If not, why wouldn't they? Anyone know either way?

I'd wager a bet that they do include the m and options inside the framework of the base model frame. For example the 5 series probably includes the m5.

How is 3 series down? You must be looking on something else. The 3 is up 19%.

I thought as much. Would be interesting to see a separate line for M models though

YTD is still -5.5 %
X3/ X5 / X7 overpassed considerably 3/ 5/ 7 series...
Again proved that 6GT is a nonsense for US Market 🤔

From other sources NA is the biggest M market and growing, hence the massive expansion of M products.

Tesla sales didn't meet goals and their stock took a hit. Even in the age of EVs we are seeing growth in petrol vehicles. Tesla needs to release the Model Y soon or continue to miss out on the action as the model x is too expensive for the mass market.
Comparing YTD 2018/2019 change between the TM3 and all the BMW passenger cars is interesting. The TM3 US sales have gone from 78k Jan-sept 2018 to 107.4k over that time in 2019.

It is expected that the TMY will cut at TM3 sales... but how will it impact the X1/2/3 sales? If the functionality is there in the TMY, BMW should be worried because the price cost might be lower.

Not bad. Benz is flat YTD.

Auto sales in NA are flat and stalled at 17m units per year, for the past several years. Growth in such an environment speaks to desirability of the product.

New 3 series hit a home run in my opinion, in every way (style and driven dynamics). I just love driving it. 👍

same thing for the X5, despite my issues I love mine. I want an M8 GC or M5 CS (upcoming model) next if I go with a sedan

Most people on this forum - "BMW isn't what they used to be, their cars suck now, M cars are a thing of the past, I don't know who would still buy a BMW"

I think BMW did a great job on the X3. My wife and I are new to the brand, and the experience so far is positive. YOY X3 sales suggest others agree that the X3 is worth buying.
