GM sales up 34 per cent


General Motors India registered a growth of 34 per cent in sales in August 2010 compared to the corresponding period last year.

It sold 7,941 units against 5,939 units in August 2009, a release said here today.


The August 2010 sales comprised 2,481 units of Chevrolet Spark, 2,475 units of Chevrolet Beat, 1,438 units of the Chevrolet Tavera, 724 units of the Chevrolet Cruze, 325 units of Chevrolet Aveo, 240 units of Chevrolet Aveo U-VA, 176 units of the Chevrolet Captiva and 82 units of Chevrolet Optra.

The increase in the sales was primarily driven by the response to Chevrolet Beat, Cruze and Spark, it said.

"We are excited by the continued overwhelming response to Chevrolet Beat, Spark and Cruze," GM India Vice-President P Balendran said.

"Introduction of best-in-segment cars from the 300 series, increase in customer outreach through distribution network, our unique value proposition like Chevrolet Cashless Ownership offer and our promise to deliver quality and performance are the factors that have led to the impressive sales," he said.
