Shanghai – Vehicle sales by General Motors and its joint ventures in China rose 22.2 percent on an annual basis in July to 176,645 units, a new record for the month. Sales growth by GM’s Shanghai GM joint venture remained especially strong, rising 42.1 percent on an annual basis to 80,269 units – also a record for the month of July.

Demand for its Chevrolet lineup jumped 70.1 percent on an annual basis to 35,385 units, driven by the ongoing popularity of the Cruze and New Sail passenger cars, as well as sharply increasing demand for the Captiva SUV. On July 28, sales of its Chevrolet products passed the 1 million mark since Shanghai GM began offering the brand in 2005.

Shanghai GM’s Chevrolet brand also came in first in the J.D. Power Asia Pacific 2010 China Customer Service Index Study released at the end of July.

Buick sales were up 24.0 percent on an annual basis in July to 43,541 units. The Excelle family, LaCROSSE and New Regal remained its most popular products. Sales of Shanghai GM’s Cadillac lineup were also robust, rising 148.2 percent year on year.

SAIC-GM-Wuling sales totaled 90,658 units in July, a new record for the month. Sales of the joint venture’s Wuling Sunshine minivan once again surpassed 50,000 units. FAW-GM, GM’s light commercial vehicle joint venture, sold 5,560 units in its first July reporting sales.

In the first seven months as a whole, GM and its joint ventures sold 1,385,786 vehicles in China, which was an increase of 44.5 percent from the same period in 2009.
