General Motors Reports US Sales Up 20% in September

General Motors today announced that its combined deliveries during last month amounted to 07,145 vehicles, a 20-percent increase compared with September 2010.

"For GM, all of the factors that say this is a good time to buy a new vehicle outweigh the bad news that appears to be slowing down the broader economic recovery,"
said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations.

"We're well positioned going forward because we have momentum and another wave of fuel-efficient passenger cars launching over the next several months at Chevrolet, Buick and Cadillac,"
added the VP.

The Chevrolet brand saw its 12th consecutive month of sales increase, as Cruze deliveries were 18,097 units, bringing its first full year of sales to 212,019 vehicles. Silverado sales increased 36 percent, Tahoe was up 63 percent and Equinox was up 33 percent.

Cadillac saw 24 percent more sales of the CTS sedan, coupe and wagon models, while the SRX was 22 percent more in demand.

Buick saw the biggest increases and the 24th consecutive month of this dynamic in its figures. The new Regal was up 87 percent.

“Month-end dealer inventory in the United States was 558,157 units. GM’s full-size truck inventory was 208,650 full-size pickup trucks, which equates to an 88-days supply. GM is on track to meet its target of ending 2011 with a full-size pickup inventory of about 200,000 units,” the official statement read.
