Volkswagen, BMW up U.S. Sales

German mass carmaker Volkswagen improved January VW brand sales in the United States by 2.3% to 16,610 vehicles thanks to rising demand for the Passat estate and the Golf GTI models, the company said late on Thursday.

Luxury brand BMW, which makes roughly a third of the cars globally that VW does per year, continued to outsell its larger mass market peer in the United States with 19,761 vehicles delivered last month - a rise of 2.1%.

Including the 30% monthly decline at its Mini brand, where demand cools as the next generation first hits showrooms the middle of this month, BMW group sales fell 1.8% to 21,811 units in January in the United States.
