Frankfurt: The German luxury car maker BMW said Tuesday that slumping sales had eased in June but warned more time was needed to determine if a slight improvement in the sector would last.

BMW said it delivered 127,500 vehicles worldwide, a decrease of 12.7% from the same month a year earlier, making June the company’s best month this year, a statement said.

In the first half of 2009, BMW group sales lost 19.5% to around 615,500 vehicles, with its two leading brands, BMW and Mini, showing similar drops.

Rolls-Royce sales were off by a third at 329 models however, while sales of BMW motorcycles shed 16%.

“There are early signs of a slight recovery on automobile markets," sales director Ian Robertson was quoted by the German language statement as saying.
