GM sold 213,387 vehicles in April in the United States

GM reported April sales of 213,387 vehicles in the United States but this number doesn’t make the American manufacturer too happy as retail sales were practically equal to April 2011. Furthermore, GM’s fleet sales saw a 25 percent drop due to the timing of rental customer deliveries. GM also increased its full-year light vehicle sales forecast to 14.0 million – 14.5 million units from 13.5 million – 14.0 million units.

The 2012 Chevrolet Sonic was the most important car for GM in the United States as sales increased 38 percent. The Buick Verano sales reached 2,989 units, increasing each month since the car went on sale back in November 2011.

Chevrolet sold 1,462 units of the Volt, but the sales were limited by availability of vehicles in California, where GM is launching a model that qualifies for high-occupancy vehicle lane access.

The Cadillac CTS sedan sales increased by 7 percent year-over-year, while the GMC Sierra sales increased 20 percent. The GMC Terrain sales increased 9 percent, while the Chevrolet Silverado and the Equinox saw a 5 percent and 7 percent increase, respectively.

“We expect gradual improvement in the economy going forward,” said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations. “Over time, strength in the manufacturing sector and strong retail sales will lead to more job creation. That will help more consumers put the recession behind them, gain even more confidence and drive vehicle sales higher for both the industry and GM.”
