GM Cracks 1M Unit Annual Sales Mark in China

General Motors (GM) has become the first global automaker to sell one million vehicles in China in a single year. GM sales in China first surpassed 100,000 units annually in 2002. Since then, GM sales have grown steadily, topping 500,000 annual sales in 2005.

The one-millionth car was a Buick Park Avenue.

This year, GM and its joint venture partners have begun offering several new products, including the Cadillac SLS luxury business sedan, Buick Park Avenue premium sedan, Chevrolet Captiva SUV, all-new Chevrolet Epica intermediate sedan and Wuling Hong Tu minivan.

Both Shanghai GM, the automaker’s lead manufacturing joint venture, and the Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC), GM’s engineering and design joint venture with Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), marked their 10th anniversaries earlier this year. SAIC-GM-Wuling, GM’s mini-vehicle joint venture, also celebrated its fifth anniversary.

Will more large Cadillac and Buick Fifth Avenue be sold (or are already sold) in China than in USA.

If so, it is not very good news for China's air quality and fossil fuel consumption.

OTOH, does this indicate that the money bag is moving?

What else will go with it?

Interesting times.
