GM Delivers July Record 270,529 Vehicles in China

August 4, 2016

SHANGHAI ¨C General Motors and its joint ventures delivered a July record 270,529 vehicles in China, taking deliveries for 2016 past 2 million vehicles.

July deliveries advanced 18 percent year over year, with the Buick, Cadillac and Baojun brands reaching all-time highs for the month.

¡°GM and our joint ventures managed to top 2 million deliveries in record time, as sales remained strong across many segments,¡± said GM Executive Vice President and GM China President Matt Tsien.

Cadillac deliveries in July jumped 90 percent year over year to 8,757 units. Demand for both the ATS-L luxury sedan and XT5 luxury crossover topped 2,600 units, while sales of the XTS luxury sedan increased 54 percent from the same period a year earlier.

Buick deliveries in July totaled 89,404 units, an increase of 30 percent, led by the Excelle GT and Envision.

Baojun deliveries last month totaled 44,320 units, a gain of 61 percent year over year. Demand for the Baojun 730 MPV was up 23 percent from the previous July, while sales of the Baojun 560 SUV more than tripled.

Wuling deliveries experienced year-over-year growth for a second consecutive month, increasing 6 percent in July to 97,728 units despite the challenging market environment of the mini-commercial vehicle segment.

Chevrolet deliveries were down 15 percent year over year to 30,287 units in July. 

Chevrolet introduced the all-new Cruze in China last month. As the brand¡¯s best-selling model both globally and in China, the Cruze posted sales of more than 14,000 units in July in the domestic market.

In the first seven months of 2016, GM and its joint ventures¡¯ deliveries in China increased 6.8 percent year over year to 2,081,005 units.

 

General Motors traces its roots back to 1908. GM has 11 joint ventures, two wholly owned foreign enterprises and more than 58,000 employees in China. GM and its joint ventures offer the broadest lineup of vehicles and brands among automakers in China. Passenger cars and commercial vehicles are sold under the Baojun, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Jiefang and Wuling brands. In 2015, GM delivered more than 3.6 million vehicles in China.
