General Motors reported sales of 210,245 vehicles in the United States for the month of September 2012, representing a 1.5 percent increase compared to the same time frame a year ago. The results mark GM’s highest U.S. September sales since 2008.
Overall, car sales increased 29 percent in September compared to the same time period last year, while sales of GM’s mini, small, and compact cars increased a whopping 97 percent (combined). In addition, all GM brands increased their retails sales during the month.
The sales boost is partly due to GM’s lineup of new vehicles with better designs, increased levels of technology, and improved fuel economy — which are generating increased consumer interest. Meanwhile, the automaker is embarking on a product offensive in which 70 percent of its nameplates will be all-new or redesigned in 2012 and 2013. In addition, GM is entering new growth segments with new entry points for each brand.[table "220" seems to be empty /]
