The fast-rising volume increases in China drove BMW’s group sales up by 23% to 170,932 units in November, setting a record for that month. The worldwide sales of BMW's core brand increased by 26.4% to 145,452. Meanwhile, the group's Mini brand delivered 25,077 units, standing for a 6.6% increase.

In last Monday’s statement, BMW Group sales chief Ian Robertson said that the result would place the automaker on track to attaining record sales in 2012 and forecasted that BMW will return to its top position worldwide in the premium car segment. In November, group sales in China rose by 62.3% to 31,090 vehicles.

This adds to a total of 295,974 units, a 37.6% increase, for the period from January to November 2012. The company said that the majority of sales had stemmed from the core BMW brand, specifically the X1 small SUV and series 3 long wheel-base models. Europe’s group sales in November increased by 9.9% to 76,084 units.

Demand rose by 1.5% to 787,286 units through November. U.S. group sales increased by 38.8% to 36,461 units. In this market, BMW’s brand still trails behind Mercedes-Benz in premium auto sales.

Deliveries climbed 11.3% to 303,728 units through November. This led to the BMW Group reporting that total deliveries increased by 10.1% to 1.66 million. Last Thursday, Daimler (the rival automaker) said that sales of the Mercedes-Benz Cars unit increased by 5.3% last month to 128,768, contributing to a 4.9% increase for the January-November 2012 period to 1.29 million units.
