General Motors Commercial Fleet Sales Rise in 2014
“Each facet of our fleet and commercial business was up in 2014,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, GM Fleet & Commercial. “Our sales performance was strong in every segment of the market – pickups, full size vans, cars and crossovers.”
Chevrolet says that its commercial sales were up 24%, sales from rentals were up 2.4%, and government sales were up 0.3%. Including December, General Motors commercial fleet sales have increased in 14 consecutive months, thanks in large part to the 2014 Fleet Car of the Year.
Fleet sales of the Chevrolet Cruze, which was named the Fleet Car of the Year by both Automotive Fleet and Business Fleet, were up a whopping 51% year-over-year.
Additionally, sales were driven by eight models that were named 2014 Best Fleet Value vehicles in the 9th annual Vincentric Awards—the Buick Encore, Buick Enclave, Buick LaCrosse, Buick Verano, Chevrolet Spark EV, Chevrolet Express G3500, GMC Sierra 2500HD and GMC Sierra 3500HD.
“We are committed to providing our commercial customers with vehicles that are not only great on the road, but great for their bottom line,” Peper said.
