MINI is Not Going to Increase Production Despite Record Sales

MINI is having a record sales year thanks to the high gas prices. Sales in the first six months of this year were up a record 33.6 percent with a total 26,400 units sold.

According to Tom Kowaleski, BMW’s North American vice president of corporate communications, BMW is not planning on increasing production of the popular MINI in the near future. As of July 1st MINI dealrers in the US had a total of only 1,051 cars. Kowaleski stated that MINI marketing execs are currently accessing the situation before they ask BMW to increase production. He also stated that the pricing for the 2009 models are also under review due to the rising cost of commodities and the weakening dollar.
