General Motors sold 264,843 units of its vehicles in the United States in June, which is a 6 per cent compared to previous year.
Kurt McNeil, vice president, U.S Sales Operations said
“Our Chevrolet, Buick-GMC and Cadillac dealers reported strong retail deliveries across the board in June and for the first six months of the year.We have good momentum heading into the second half of 2013: the economic outlook is solid and our launch vehicles are performing well in the marketplace.”
Mustafa Mohatarem, GM chief economist said
“America’s families are better off than they were at the beginning of the year and they believe – with good justification – that the economic expansion is going to continue. Even moderate economic growth will be enough to keep the auto sales rate in the second half of the year at healthy levels around the mid 15 million-unit mark.”
Cadillac’s year-to-date sales increased by 38 per cent, highest increase since 1976.
Bob Ferguson, vice president, Global Cadillac said
“Cadillac is back. Our growth is product-driven, new luxury vehicles with dramatic design and performance drawing new customers to showrooms.”
