General Motors, including its joint ventures, moved a grand total of 248,815 vehicles in China last month, a 4.8% year-over-year decrease attributed to “softness in the overall vehicle market.” Still, GM and its joint ventures have posted a total of 2,197,192 sales through eight months, good for a 2.3% year-over-year increase to date.

“Amid the challenging market environment, we have remained focused on providing great products designed for China to meet the needs of our customers,” said GM Executive Vice President and GM China President Matt Tsien. “Recently launched models such as the Buick Excelle GT and Cadillac ATS-L have been well received by consumers and produced solid sales growth.”
