BMW Group will take the global luxury sales crown for 2021, the automaker's sales chief predicted Tuesday.
"We are proud to claim the No. 1 position in the global premium automotive segment for the full year 2021," Pieter Nota told Automotive News.
The German automaker said it sold more than 2.2 million BMW-branded vehicles — a record — globally last year.
While rival Mercedes-Benz has yet to report 2021 sales, BMW had the momentum through much of the year.
