BMW has overtaken Mercedes Benz India in sales of luxury cars. With a sales figure of over 6246 luxury cars sold in the year 2010 compared to the total number of cars sold by Mercedes Benz which stands at 5819, BMW is India’s number 1 luxury car maker. This is second time in a row, year 2009 and year 2010 when BMW has let Mercedes behind in sales numbers.

The total increase in the sales of BMW cars in India compared to the sales in the year 2009 has been 73% which is a phenomenal growth in sales for a luxury car maker in a price sensitive economy like India.
