Another month, another monthly sales record for General Motors' Chinese operations. The Detroit-based automaker said it sold 244,266 vehicles in China last month, good enough to set a new company September sales record.
GM recorded 244,266 deliveries in China last month, up 1.7 percent over the same month a year earlier. September's results were also 10.5 percent better than those posted in August.
The automaker's Shanghai GM joint-venture led the way in September sales with a 3.7 percent increase to 120,010 units. GM's Chevrolet brand saw similar growth with a 3.2 percent monthly improvement to a record-setting 56,166 vehicles.
SAIC-GM-Wuling’s sales inched up 0.4 percent to 119,510 units.
GM's typically hot-selling Buick brand saw sales cool 1.8 percent to 62,120 units. Cadillac's Chinese sales dropped off even more, with the brand's deliveries sliding 8.3 percent during the month.
Through the first nine months of the year GM's Chinese operations have amassed 2,081,812 sales, marking a 10 percent improvement over the same period a year prior.
