Munich (dpa) - Upmarket German carmaker BMW showed significantly increased sales in China, Europe and the United States in the month of February, the company said in a statement released on Tuesday.

Turnover rose 5.8 per cent to 179,000 units of the brands BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce by comparison with the same month in 2017.

BMW marketing head Pieter Nota predicted that the main driver in sales growth over the months ahead would come from BMW‘s SUV models, pointing to the start of X3 production in China and South Africa and the launch of the X2.

Demand for hybrid and fully electric cars was also on the rise, increasing by 40 per cent since the start of the year to 15,000 vehicles, Nota said.

In the race for the top spot in the luxury segment, BMW‘s German rival Mercedes is out in front, selling a total of 357,000 cars this year so far, against 304,000 for BMW and 280,000 for VW subsidiary Audi.

BMW Group chief executive Harald Krueger aims to regain the top spot by 2020. "That is the firm target for everyone," he said at the Geneva Car Show a week ago.

In February, the BMW marque saw a rise in deliveries of 5.1 per cent, while Mini sales went up by 10.8 per cent. Total deliveries for the group rose 4.0 per cent in Europe, and around twice as much in China and the US.
