The first half of the calendar year 2018 brought cheer for German luxury carmaker BMW Group as the brand reported record sales for both BMW and Mini cars combined.

“The BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo and the BMW X3 have already exceeded our expectations and we see remarkable sales contributions coming from both in the future. Moreover, introduction of Euro VI petrol engines in our product portfolio has played an important role,” according to Vikram Pawah, president, BMW Group India.
