Jan. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg international correspondent Hans Nichols reports on BMW leading global luxury car sales for a ninth straight year on Bloomberg Television’s “The Pulse.”

Question i don't understand about why these three exclusive luxury brands are vying to the top place.

Don't you want to be exclusive?

Why would you want to see more bmws on the road?

Em w wins the top spot this year, increased sales by 7.5%. strong push from audi and mercedes.

Mercedes came in first place in the united states with around 300,000 cars but if i'm going to buy a luxury car, don't i want to be the only one on the road?

I don't understand why there is so much bragging at stake in this race to the number one.

I guess because the more cards you sell the more money you make.

There probably is a point in time where those two lines cross.

The point is, they are not there yet.

Mercedes really needs to push on.

And mercedes is making a big push.

They are updating their class with a lot of tech.

It will look like your iphone, your ipad.

They are unveiling at the detroit auto show.

This is their first revamp and about seven years.

Our cities has a starter car in the states and that is really increased sales.

It is around 30,000 you -- $30,000. still, basically it looks the same outside.

Inside, a lot of bells and whistles.

Just a little more techie.

All the car companies are going really techie inside.

One day they will all be driverless and we can just chat in the back.

You do anyway with your chauffeur.

That is where we are headed.

Yeah, ryan chilcote stepping up for that job.

Thank you very much indeed.
