GM Delivers Record 295,282 Vehicles in China in May

June 3, 2016 -- General Motors and its joint ventures delivered a May record 295,282 vehicles in China, up 16.9 percent on an annual basis.

Its Buick, Cadillac and Baojun brands, and SUV lineup reached all-time highs for deliveries as well in May.

¡°GM vehicle deliveries in China achieved robust growth in May,¡± said GM Executive Vice President and GM China President Matt Tsien. ¡°While demand for our SUVs, MPVs and luxury vehicles remained strong, we also saw impressive demand for passenger car models such as the Buick Excelle GT.¡±

Cadillac deliveries in May rose 30 percent from a year earlier to 8,568 units. Demand for both the XTS and ATS-L luxury sedans topped 2,400 units. The XT5 luxury crossover had deliveries of 1,449 units in its first full month on the market.

Buick deliveries were up 61 percent year over year to 100,864 units. Demand for the Excelle family nearly doubled from the previous May to 47,332 units. The brand also saw growth in demand for its SUVs and MPVs to 30,954 units, which was up 24 percent from a year earlier.

Baojun delivered 43,515 vehicles in China last month, a gain of 80 percent year over year. It was once again led by the popular Baojun 730 MPV and Baojun 560 SUV.

Chevrolet deliveries were down 24 percent year over year in May to 38,114 units. Deliveries of its new flagship sedan, the Malibu XL, increased 37 percent from the previous month. It will be joined in the Chevrolet lineup by additional models within the next few months.

Wuling deliveries topped 104,100 units, a modest 5 percent decline from the previous May, despite continued weak demand in the mini-commercial vehicle segment.

In the first five months of 2016, GM and its joint ventures¡¯ deliveries increased 4.3 percent year over year to another record high for the period of 1,536,913 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.
