For the second year in a row, General Motors has managed to sell more than two million vehicles in China. In 2010, the company broke the double million mark mid November. During 2011 however, the two millionth car was sold during October, proving that the Chinese market share can always be improved. With three brands: Buick, Cadillac and Chevrolet, GM China Group is a major contributor to the entire company.
“This is another outstanding achievement for GM in the world’s largest vehicle market,” said Kevin Wale, president and managing director of the GM China Group. “Our key brands and many of our key products have continued to experience record demand despite intense competition.” Since last year, Demand has grown for all brands but for Cadillac more so; jumping up 73 percent. Chevrolet increased by 18 percent while Buick’s demand grew larger by 24 percent.
“We do not intend to rest on our laurels,” said Wale. “We look forward to building on our success through the ongoing introduction of great new products and services for the people of China.”
