General Motors reported a total of 26,596 vehicles delivered in the month of April between its GMC, Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac brands. That total was down 9% from the sales total from April 2015, but good enough to bring the brand’s to-date sales up 8% over sales through April 2015 and up 10% at retail.

“In April we remained focused on our strategy of growing profitable retail share while maintaining disciplined incentive spending and reducing rental deliveries,” said John Roth, vice president, sales, service and marketing for GM Canada. “Calendar year-to-date retail sales are up nearly 10% and consumer demand remains strong for our new launch products like the Chevrolet Spark and Volt. 2016 is one of our biggest launch years ever with nine new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillacs hitting showroom floors throughout the year.”
