The Americans from General Motors got a good reason to celebrate as they managed to sell about 2,35 million units in China in 2010, setting a record and for the first time the U.S. market being defetead in the sales ranking by China. Thus, China became the biggest automotive market for GM in 2010 and this growing trend might continue this year too.
A part of this great achievement is also due to the partnerships with the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), FAW and Wuling local car makers. The Americans also defeated Toyota on the Chinese market, the Japanese manufacturer managing to sell around 850,000 units in 2010, an increase by 19% compared to 2009.
On the other hand, the automotive brands owned by GM saw an increase by 28,8% compared to the last year, as we told you below, about 2,35 million units being sold in China in 2009. Is interesting to observe if this year the Chinese market will continue its expansion.
