Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Post Sales Gains


    
    Retail Sales of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Up 13 Percent

    GM Retail Market Share Increased Two Share Points in Q4 vs. Q3

    U.S. Dealer Inventory Reaches 385,000 - Lowest Year-End Level on Record






    
</pre>
<p><location>DETROIT</location>, <chron>Jan 5</chron>. /CNW/ -- GM dealers in the U.S. reported 160,996 retail deliveries in December - a 7 percent increase compared to last year, and a 50 percent increase over last month. Retail sales of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac brands were 146,419 - up 13 percent for the month. In total, GM dealers in the U.S. delivered 208,511 vehicles in December. This represents a total sales decline of 6 percent from the previous year, driven primarily by declines in fleet sales (33 percent) and in sales of non-core brands (55 percent).</p>
<p/>
<p>"The fact that our retail market share has increased two full points from the third to fourth quarters demonstrates that we are strengthening our brands," said <person>Susan Docherty</person>, GM vice president, U.S. Sales. "We are delivering a healthier sales mix and earning consumer confidence through our launch vehicles such as Chevy Equinox and Camaro, Buick LaCrosse, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX."</p>
<p/>
<p>In 2009, GM dealers delivered 2,084,492 vehicles, down 30 percent compared with 2008. "The year-over-year comparison reflects a 38 percent reduction in fleet, reduced overall incentive spending and the orderly wind-down of the Pontiac and Saturn brands," Docherty said. "Our sell-down of Pontiac and Saturn inventory is 10 months ahead of schedule and we only have about 1,700 vehicles left - 800 Pontiacs and 900 Saturns. This shows real progress in our action plans."</p>

    Management Discussion of December Sales Results
    
</pre>
<p>"Increasingly, we are seeing signs of a global economic recovery," said Mike DiGiovanni, executive director, Global Market and Industry Analysis. "In the U.S., with firm used car prices, low interest rates and an improving economic outlook we expect industry sales to improve after a dismal 2009 performance."</p>

    U.S. Economy
    --  Overall, economic leading indicators point to a continuing recovery in
        2010, although risks remain.
    --  Job losses slowed significantly in November, and the unemployment rate
        dropped from 10.2% to 10%. However, this is still high by historical
        standards.
    --  Although consumer confidence improved in December to the second
highest
        level in 2009, it is likely to stay tepid due to the high unemployment
        rate.
    --  Housing market is mixed. Although existing home sales are surging, new
        home sales and home prices have softened recently.
    --  Manufacturing sector continues to expand due to depleted inventory and
        better than expected holiday sales.

    U. S. Auto Industry
    --  The U.S. December 2009 SAAR is estimated to be approximately the same
        as November - 11.0 to 11.2 million (total industry estimate) -
        resulting in total vehicle sales of 10.6 million for the entire 2009
        CY, the lowest since 1982.
    --  Based on the strengthening U.S. economy, 2010 CY sales are projected
to
        rise to between 11.0 to 12.0 million.
