BMW MINI Sales By Nation : 2013

2014 MINI Cooper on its way

This is a top 40 list as I have been able to compile. There are a few nations not here, most notably Taiwan and Thailand. The Middle East is an unusual listing but gives an indicator of sales in that region. MINI started doing commercial vehicles in a limited way and for some European nations, that is excluded.

Total sales increase was a modest 1.2%, not helped by a new MINI hatch being released in early 2014. The USA retained its top spot, which it has held since 2008. China sales had yet another good year while Korea's spectacular increases of late failed to be replicated in 2013.

Hi Ray,

Given the fall in Mini production at Cowley I assume the increase came from the larger Countryman version, which is manufactured in Austria (or is it the Netherlands) I believe.

Hi Chris. It wasn't a large fall at Cowley, but yes the Countryman at Magna Steyr made up the difference. It will soon switch to the Netherlands to the Mitsubishi facility.
