In November we achieved another substantial increase in our global deliveries. We intend to continue this trend in December,” BMW sales chief Ian Robertson said in a statement. Sales for the BMW brand were 90,383 cars last month, with the revamped Z4 roadster and the flagship 7-series sedan achieving the highest growth rates year-on-year.
