The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

BMW (BMWG.DE) re­ported a 7.5 per­cent rise in monthly car sales to 152,879 ve­hi­cles in Jan­uary, as growth in Europe and China more than off­set a slide in the United States, where win­ter storms de­terred car buy­ers.

"De­spite many mar­kets show­ing con­tin­u­ing volatil­ity, we re­main op­ti­mistic that this pos­i­tive trend will con­tinue through 2016," sales chief Ian Robert­son said in a state­ment on Tues­day.

De­liv­er­ies of BMW and MINI model cars in China were up 8.4 per­cent at 43,441 ve­hi­cles in Jan­uary, while de­liv­er­ies in the United States slipped 4 per­cent to 26,667 cars to due to storms that dis­rupted large parts of the coun­try, BMW said. Sales in Europe were up rose 10.9 per­cent, helped by dou­ble-digit growth in Italy, France and Spain.
