New BMW sales fell 1.9 percent in March

The new BMW car sales fell 1.9 percent to 141,568 in March, German luxury carmaker said Tuesday.

In the first quarter, the Munich-based automaker said it delivered 333,276 BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce brand cars, up 0.1 percent on the same period a year earlier.

"We are expecting stronger growth" in the coming months, said BMW executive board member Michael Ganal. He expects growth to be driven by the introduction of new models.
