MUNICH ( TheStreet) -- BMW said August sales rose 12.5% with Asia, and China in particular, boosting car deliveries. BMW, in a press statement Thursday, said it delivered 103,239 automobiles to customers in August. "We have already sold more than 106,000 BMW and MINI vehicles so far this year in China: This is more than in the whole of 2009," said Ian Robertson, a BMW sales and marketing executive, in a statement. "However ... we aim to maintain a good balance between our Europe, Asia and Americas regions." Deliveries for the first eight months of 2010 also rose 12.5% to 919,258. -- Written by Joseph Woelfel >To contact the writer of this article, click here: Joseph Woelfel >To submit a news tip, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
