Baojun 510 compact crossover
GM sales rise 4.4%, top 4 million in 2017 as Cadillac, Baojun shine
Automotive News China | 2018/1/5

SHANGHAI -- General Motors' annual sales in China topped 4 million vehicles for the first time in 2017, increasing 4.4 percent year on year to 4.04 million.

The growth was led by the Cadillac luxury marque and the Baojun entry-level brand.

Cadillac deliveries in 2017 surged 51 percent from a year earlier to 175,489 on volumes generated by the XT5 crossover and two sedan models -- the XTS and the long-wheelbase ATS. 

Baojun sales jumped 45 percent to 996,629 on demand for two new models -- the 510 compact crossover and the 310 wagon.

Chevrolet deliveries rose 4.2 percent to 547,561, reflecting strong sales of the Equinox crossover and the Malibu, the brand¡¯s flagship sedan.  

Buick sales exceeded 1.18 million, virtually unchanged from a year earlier.  

Deliveries at Wuling, China¡¯s largest minibus brand, dropped 16 percent to 1.14 million as the country¡¯s no-frills minibus market continues to shrink.

China has been GM¡¯s largest market for the past six years, according to the company.
