BMW Diesel Tuning the next big thing? Diesel sales pick up for BMW, big time.
Is BMW Diesel tuning the next big thing? With Diesel's making up about half of all BMW sales, this sector is poised for great expansion. The sales figures are a bit misleading however as these are global BMW sales and not a reflection of the US market where gasoline still dominates. Part of the reason is that BMW does not sell their full Diesel lineup in the United States. If they did, the numbers would be even more in the favor of Diesel as Americans are becoming more and more open to the idea of oil burners. Just look at the numbers in the graph for the BMW third quarter numbers, almost 2/3 of sales are Diesel.
