Chevy Cruze in Beijing

While GM’s head-flack Selim Bingol was swearing at Ed Niedermeyer, and that it’s not true that GM is sending its money to China, GM’s Chinese operation again outsold America. GM China sold 261,870 units in April, up 15.3%. In the U.S., GM sold 237,646 in April. In the first four months of the year, GM sold 821,707 vehicles stateside. Meanwhile in China, it sold 1,078,243.

Shanghai GM, i.e. Buick. Chevrolet and Cadillac are up a very solid 29.2 percent in April and gained 16.8 percent in the first four months. In April, Cadillac nearly doubled its formerly lackluster Chinese sales, boosted by 2,006 units of the locally assembled XTS. Chevrolet’s China sales are powered by 17,277 units of the  Cruze compact and 15,409 units of the Sail supermini.

The small commercial sector that helped GM goose its numbers in the past is still down. Sales of the Wuling brand rose only 5.7 percent, sales of GM’s joint venture with FAW are down a bit.

GM’s strong showing, especially at its core sector, bodes very well for the Chinese auto industry.

    Mr. Neidermeyer, maybe this sounds better: China is sending it’s money to GM – one car at a time.
