Article by Christian A., on November 7, 2010

In a single year, General Motors was able to sell over 2 million vehicles in China – the first global automaker to achieve this awesome feat. It can be recalled that 3 years ago, GM was the first automaker to reach the 1 million annual sales mark in China.

GM has been leading other global carmakers in China for five straight years and has been maintaining its momentum in 2010.

Last year, GM sold 1,826,424 vehicles nationwide. Kevin Wale, President and Managing Director of the GM China Group, considers the recent recognition as “another important milestone for General Motors in China.

Wale added that in the past decade, the Chinese market has had “unprecedented growth.” He shared that GM has expanded as well and is working with its joint ventures to extend its lineup of vehicles and brands.

It is also adding to its portfolio of services, and boosting its production capacity to comply with the changing needs of consumers throughout the country. GM and its affiliates have gained from record monthly sales that year.

Last October, GM sold 199,641 vehicles in China, a 19.6% increase on an annual basis. It was also at an all-time high for the month.

“This is another important milestone for General Motors in China,” said Kevin Wale, President and Managing Director of the GM China Group. “It was only three years ago that GM became the first global automaker to reach the 1 million annual sales mark in China.”
