General Motors says its global sales rose 2% in the third quarter of 2014

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 16, 2014

GM’s officials have plenty of reasons to be happy as company’s global sales increased 2 percent in the third quarter thanks to markets like China and the United States. According to the official press release, General Motors managed to sell 2,449,595 cars and trucks, up from 2,396,864 in the same period last year.

What’s more interesting is that last year, GM had the best third-quarter sales since 1980. Moreover, GM sold 7,371,743 vehicles in the first nine months of this year, representing a 2 percent increase from 7,250,764 last year.

Meanwhile, Volkswagen AG said that it sold 7,4 million vehicles in the first nine months of this year and we could see an interesting battle with GM.

“GM delivered its best third quarter global sales in 34 years thanks to solid growth in the United States and China, and steady improvement in Opel’s market share,” said GM CEO Mary Barra. “We have launches now underway, including the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon in North America, the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa in Europe, and the Buick Envision and Cadillac ATS-L in China, that will keep our momentum going.” [source: GM]
