GM had an up-month across the board, increasing retail and commercial sales, average transaction prices, and market shares. GM’s US VP of Sales Operations, Kurt McNeil, notes that GM was able accomplish all of this without increasing incentive spending.
“Staying focused on core values like initial quality, sales and service satisfaction, cost of ownership, dependability and advanced technology is paying off in higher sales and share, stronger transaction prices and lower incentives,” said McNeil. “Unlike our competitors, we did not need to rely on higher incentives to grow our business.”
