GM's sales advance 15% on strength of Chevrolet, Baojun
Automotive News China | 2018/2/13

SHANGHAI -- General Motors¡¯ China deliveries advanced nearly 15 percent year on year to 367,712 vehicles last month thanks to strong sales by Chevrolet and Baojun. 

In January, Chevrolet sales surged 40 percent from a year earlier to 54,350 on demand for the Cavalier and Malibu sedans. 

Deliveries of Baojun, GM¡¯s entry-level brand, jumped 36 percent to 92,356, led by the 510 crossover and the 310 wagon.

Cadillac sales rose 12 percent to 20,222 on demand for the XT5 crossover and XTS, ATS-L and CT6 sedans. The luxury brand has recorded double-digit sales growth for 23 consecutive months.

Buick deliveries increased 5.7 percent to 113,007 as demand for the GL8 and GL6 multipurpose vehicles remained strong. 

Wuling, China¡¯s largest microvan brand, delivered 87,777 vehicles. GM didn¡¯t provide Wuling¡¯s sales change from a year earlier. 

To sustain sales growth, GM plans to introduce 15 new and freshened models in China in 2018. About half will be crossovers, SUVs and MPVs, the automaker said.
