General Motors Co. dealers delivered 284,694 vehicles in the United States in May, up 13 per cent compared to a year ago, marking the company's best May in seven years and its best total sales since August 2008. Retail sales - vehicles sold to individual buyers - were up 10 per cent
while fleet sales were up 21 per cent. GM expects to increase its total market share year over year.

"The momentum we generated in April carried into May, with all four brands performing well in a growing economy and 17 vehicle lines posting double-digit retail sales increases or better," said Kurt McNeil, US Vice-President of Sales Operations.

For the month, Chevrolet sales were up 14 per cent in total, driven by a 26 per cent increase in car deliveries. Buick sales were also very strong, with deliveries up 11 per cent in total and 10 per cent on a retail basis. Buick had its best May total and retail since 2005. Both Cadillac and GMC had their best May total and retail sales since 2007.
