GM Hits 2 Million Vehicles Sold In China This Year
General Motors has announced that they have sold 2 million vehicles in China as of September 21st for the year. This is the earliest date in the calendar year that GM hit this milestone and the third time in GM’s history in China. On November 4, 2010, GM became the first global auto company in China to hit 2 million in annual sales. Last year, GM hit this milestone on October 17.
“This is another important accomplishment for General Motors in the world’s largest vehicle market,” stated Kevin Wale, the president of GM China, and chief country operations officer, China, India and ASEAN. “Despite the temporary slowdown in sales growth in China, GM has continued to experience strong demand for our unequalled lineup of passenger and commercial vehicles.”
SAIC-GM-Wuling builds and sells vehicles under the Wuling and Baojun brands and they have hit 1 million unit sales for 2012 as of earlier this month. Shanghai GM sells vehicles from the Buick, Cadillac, and Chevrolet brands and they will soon hit 1 million in unit sales for 2012. In the first eight months of 2012, GM and their joint ventures sold 1,837,546 vehicles, which is an 11.2% increase year-on-year.
