GM is doing great in China, and the month of September brings with it record-breaking sales figures. According to official statements, the American giant has managed to sell 244,266 vehicles in September, marking a 1.7% improvement over last year’s numbers for the same month.
The figure also marks a 10.5% improvement over what was recorded in August. This only adds to the excellent performance registered so far this year, as GM has sold a total of 2.1-million vehicles so far, marking a 10% increase over last year. This year’s sales will only be boosted by the Japanese manufacturers’ “problem”, as their cut in local production means that some people will have to look for alternatives, and GM is just such an alternative, with their extremely wide range of offerings.

The overall auto sales figure rose in 2011, by 2.5%, reaching a total of 18.51-million vehicles sold, following a 32% increase in 2010. The upward trend is still there, it’s just not as strong as it was a few years ago, when the auto market in China really boomed.
