BMW India said it saw a significant contribution of over 50 per cent coming from the locally produced sports activity vehicle (SAV) range including the X1, the X3 and the X5.

"The newly launched X7 experienced astounding demand in all regions. The 3 Series and the 5 Series continued their traditional role as strong contributors in the sedan segment," it added.

MINI brand successfully increased its market share in the premium car segment despite the difficult industry scenario, it said.

The brand posted an exceptional performance and growth in the last quarter of the year, the automaker said.

Further, BMW Motorrad India overcame all obstacles and posted a stellar annual growth in 2020 against current trends, it noted.

This success was propelled by the launch of the new G 310 R and G 310 GS.

"Together, the two motorcycles commanded a share of over 80 per cent in yearly sales. The R 1250 GS / GSA, the F 750 / 850 GS and the S 1000 RR also held on to their position as important contributors," BMW Group India said.
