GM sales advance behind Cadillac, Baojun, Chevy, Buick volume
Automotive News China | 2018/3/9

SHANGHAI -- General Motors and its two joint ventures in China delivered 265,994 vehicles last month, a gain of 7.8 percent year on year despite fewer selling days because of the Lunar New Year.

Robust sales at Cadillac, Baojun, Chevrolet and Buick more than offset a steep decline on volume at Wuling. 

Cadillac sales surged 87 percent to 16,850 on demand for the XT5 SUV and the XTS sedan.

Sales at the Baojun market-entry brand jumped 38 percent to 74,745, led by the 510 crossover and the 310 wagon.

Chevrolet deliveries advanced 25 percent to 29,000 behind the Cavalier and Malibu sedans. 

Buick sales rose 22 percent to 66,507 on demand for the Excelle GT and Verano sedans. 

But sales at Wuling, Chinas largest microvan brand, slumped 25 percent to 78,892 as Chinese consumers continued to migrate from small vehicles to crossovers and SUVs. 

In the first two months of the year, GM and its joint ventures delivered 633,706 vehicles in China, an increase of 12 percent from the same period last year. 

GM plans to launch 15 new and refreshed models in China this year.
