GM's U.S. Sales Rose 20 Percent Last Month

GM’s sales for September have just been reported with a total 207,145 vehicles sold in the U.S. That’s a 20 percent increase over the same period last year.

“For GM, all of the factors that say this is a good time to buy a new vehicle outweigh the bad news that appears to be slowing down the broader economic recovery,” said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations. “We’re well positioned going forward because we have momentum and another wave of fuel-efficient passenger cars launching over the next several months at Chevrolet, Buick and Cadillac.”

Sales of GM’s passenger car sales increased 12 percent, crossover sales increased 7 percent and truck sales, which include full-size pickups and SUVs, increased 34 percent.
