BERLIN, June 10 (Reuters) - Germany's BMW said sales of its luxury-brand BMW vehicles rose by 7.8 percent in May to 139,161, outpacing delivery gains of rivals Audi and Mercedes-Benz.
BMW said on Monday that demand from the United States and China helped boost group vehicle sales, including its Mini and Rolls-Royce brands, by 6 percent last month to a record 166,397 autos.
