BMW, which had kept the global luxury sales crown for about a decade before slipping behind Mercedes in 2016, said deliveries were fueled by a 9.6 percent gain for its SUV lineup and a 15 percent increase for the 1 series.

Does it mean that the demand for BMW's SUVs increased 9.6 percent or the sales of SUVs increased by 9.6 percent?

I think the sales were increased,because the text says deliveries. Not all demands end up in sales
