Despite Slump, BMW Announces Sales Record

BMW had record sales for the first quarter of 2012, the luxury carmaker reported Wednesday. The high sales came despite an economic slump in the United States and Europe.

The boost in sales can be attributed to China, where the company sold 80,014 cars, 37% more than were sold in the country the year before.
