MUNICH - German car producer BMW Group announced on Wednesday that its group revenues last year hit a new record for the six consecutive year.

"We have met all of our ambitious targets for the financial year," said Harald Krueger, chairman of the board of management.

Meanwhile, automobile sales volume climbed by 6.1 percent to a new record level of 2,247,485 units, with sales volume growth in all major sales regions.

The four largest sales markets for the BMW Group over the past year were China, the US, Germany and the Great Britain, according to BMW.
