Do you remember where you were in 1980? Were you even born yet? 34 years ago, Jimmy Carter was president and General Motors was having one heck of a year. Now, in 2014, we are seeing the best General Motors third quarter sales results since then.
GM registered over 2.4 million global sales between June and September mostly thanks to strong sales in the United States and China. Leading those sales were GM’s pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. Combined, these two trucks increased GM’s truck market share to 35.6 percent.
Another strong GM player was the Buick Encore, which continued to lead in its segment for the sixth straight month.
“GM delivered its best third quarter global sales in 34 years thanks to solid growth in the United States and China, and steady improvement in Opel’s market share,” said GM CEO Mary Barra, in a statement. “We have launches now underway, including the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon in North America, the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa in Europe, and the Buick Envision and Cadillac ATS-L in China, that will keep our momentum going.”
