Last year, GMsold a total of 3.61 million vehicles throughout China in collaboration with its local venture partners, SAIC Motor Corp Ltd and Wuling Motors Holdings Ltd.
In December, it delivered an impressive 445,227 units, 14 per cent up on the same month in 2014 and matching sales from November 2015. While the Chinese market is currently experiencing a slow-down, tax cuts for vehicles with engines 1.6-liters or less are said to assist a rebound in national vehicle sales.
After its record year, GM has a good chance of further increasing its sales as it will introduce 13 new or refreshed models into the world’s largest market. They will include the Chevrolet Malibu XL, the Cruze XL and the luxurious Cadillac CT6 – with the latter aimed at stealing sales from BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
