BMW Expects China to Become Its Top Market

Jul 12 2013, 1:00pm CDT | by

China will likely be BMW's biggest market this year

There are few automakers in the US that have already noted China is the market where they experience their best sales in recent months. The economy in China is booming and the purchase of multiple product types within the country is growing rapidly. BMW recently announced that China is expected to surpass the United States as a top national market this year.

Much of the success for BMW in China is with its 5-series sedan. BMW reports that deliveries in China have surpassed deliveries within the United States in the first half of 2013. Ahinese deliveries are expected to rise by about 10% for the full year. "Strong growth in future will come from the smaller cities, and the strong growth will also come especially from the western region," Engel said.

BMW believes that since China has over 100 cities with more than 1 million residents that have no premium car dealers the potential in the market is huge. BMW is also surpassing Audi within the Chinese market as growth for BMW over the last three years has been 40% compared to Audi's 30% gain.

BMW M235i Manual Test: Formidable—Very Formidable

It’s no secret that we have long preferred to shift for ourselves, rather than assign that function to an automatic transmission. (Save the Manuals!) But we have to be realistic about the current climate for the stick shift. And this car illustrates why. R ...

3 New Husqvarna Street Motorcycles to Debut at EICMA 2014

Oct 27 2014 2:13pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

Husqvarna Street Motorcycles In October 2013, six months after KTM’s owner Pierer Industry AG purchased Husqvarna from BMW, the restructured Austria-based brand unveiled its 2014 lineup. But gone were the street bikes, such as the TR650 Strada and Nuda 900R. Under Pierer Industry AG – an Austrian holding company owned by Stefan Pierer that also owns 51 percent of KTM – Husqvarna said the new range would only offer motocross, enduro and minicycle machines. This proved ...

Four ways to make autonomous driving less boring in the future

Oct 27 2014 11:06am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

In the future, so it is said, our cars will drive themselves. Such a state of affairs may require a few adjustments: the name of Driving.ca, for instance, will likely have to change its name to Riding.ca, and I will have to work on my descriptions of throw-pillows and embroidered seatbelts. To be frank, it’s not something I’m looking forward to. Sure, commuting is pretty horrible, but actually getting up early and going for a long, aimless drive into the mountains is one of life’s gr ...

Oct 27 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Motor Authority

We’ve just driven the 2015 BMW M3 and M4. We found them to be undoubtedly better conceived and executed than the weighty, high-revving V-8 models they replace. Acura’s second-generation NSX has been spotted testing in Germany, and this time it’s almost certainly wearing the sheet metal we’ll see on the final product ...
