Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to MINI!
I have some very good news about MINI to share with you today. This auto show early in the year is great for a manufacturer when there are excellent retail figures to announce for the past year. This is the case with MINI. And we are pretty confident that next year will be the same too.
I would now like to present the models which will make that happen, as well as our plans for the future.
First of all, let's look back over 2007.
- Best sales levels for all three brands
- Rolls-Royce delivers over 1,000 vehicles for the first time
01/09/2008, Munich -- The BMW Group continued its successful course last year, reaching its best sales levels for all three automobile brands. Worldwide, 1,500,678 vehicles were delivered to customers (prev.yr.: 1,373,970), which corresponds to a 9.2% growth in sales.
01/08/2008 -- Everybody loves the new MINI. In its design, its flair and agile handling, the new MINI has been desirable right from the start. And now the technology-oriented aficionado of the MINI will find an even wider range of convincing arguments and selling points contributing to the success of this great car. So even more than before, the world’s only small premium car stands out through top-quality finish, exemplary safety, the most advanced drivetrain technology, outstanding efficiency, extreme reliability, and lasting value. Indeed, it is precisely through these and many other qualities that MINI has already written an impressive story of success in the USA.
Now yet another new chapter is being added to this success story:
