GM Canada Sales Up 15% in April
General Motors’ sales in Canada were up 15% in April with 29,127 units moved across the Chevy, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac brands. All brands were up significantly, largely on the strength of crossovers and pickups, though several cars also contributed heavily to GM’s sales success.
“Customer demand for our Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac cars and trucks continues to grow in the Canadian marketplace,” said John Roth, vice president, sales, service and marketing for GM Canada. “Our three truck strategy, offering the full range of pickups, from the mid-size Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon to the full-size and heavy-duty, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, to meet customers’ varied needs, has driven GM Canada to be the pickup sales leader for the month of April.”
