GMs passenger-car venture in China has reached the million unit mark this year, with the sale of a Buick Lacrosse to a Shanghai buyer this month.
This year, Shanghai GM sold 500,000 Buicks, 490,000 Chevrolets, and 16,000 Cadillac models. The company expects to sell as many as 2.3 million vehicles, in China this year, and expects that number to increase by as much as 15% in 2011. The Chinese market represents the largest one by volume for the US automaker.
Passenger-car deliveries to China rose 29% to 1.34 million in November in response to a rush spurred by government incentives set to expire at year’s end.
