General Motors' US sales up 16 per cent in October 2013

General Motors Co. dealers delivered 226,402 vehicles in the United States in October, up16 per cent versus a year ago. Retail sales were also up 16 per cent and fleet sales were up 14 per cent.

"Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick-GMC all performed well in the month, and the sales
tempo really picked up after the government shutdown ended," said Kurt McNeil, Vice-President, US Sales Operations. "We are particularly pleased with our truck momentum. Chevrolet and GMC have the newest and best light duty trucks, sales are accelerating and we are gearing up for the second, third and fourth phases of our strategic truck plan."

Sales of the new 2014 light duty Silverado and Sierra increased 62 per cent from September 2013. They accounted for about 76 per cent of GM's light duty deliveries, per plan.

Strong calendar-year-to-date sales have helped Chevrolet and GMC earn a 30 per cent share of light-duty pickups priced $40,000 or above. That is up 5 percentage points versus 2012.
