As we head into spring, this year is shaping up to be a great one for MINI. Not only is the automaker continuing to provide its fans with the cars of their dreams, its sales are climbing. Whether you’re driving a 2011 MINI Cooper Countryman, Winter Park motorists, or general MINI fan, it’s clear these sales numbers are great news.

With the additional boon of sales of the Countryman, MINI delivered 32,421 vehicles to customers worldwide. In the first quarter of 2012, 68,210 vehicles were sold. That represents a sales increase of 12.1% compared to the first quarter of 2011.

What’s driving this increase? Well, it could be due to the continued strong demand for the MINI Countryman, which posted truly noteworthy numbers these past couple months. More than 22,000 Countryman models were sold in this period, a sales increase of nearly 37 percent. That’s quite the increase for a single model over the previous year.

However, given how luxurious and eye-catching the Countryman is, these sales numbers are entirely believable. At Orlando MINI, we’ve seen more and more people wanting to experience life behind the wheel of a MINI vehicle.
