General Motors posts its best US October sales Since 2007

General Motors Co. dealers delivered 226,819 vehicles in the United States in October for the company's best October sales in seven years. Chevrolet sales were up year over year on the strength of the Silverado, Cruze, Traverse and Equinox, and Buick had its best
October in more than a decade. Total company sales a year ago were 226,402 units.

"The US economy has steadily improved all year and now we are poised for a stronger expansion backed by an improved job market, higher consumer confidence and lower fuel prices," said Kurt McNeil, US Vice-President of Sales Operations. "We have a strong hand to play, with the industry’s newest and most complete line-up of pickups and SUVs, class-leading crossovers like the Buick Encore and a wealth of new products in the pipeline."

In October, GM's fleet sales were up 6 per cent. The company posted a 30 per cent gain in commercial sales, marking the 12th consecutive month of year-over-year growth. The increase was driven by small cars, compact crossovers and large pickups. Sales to government customers were also up 30 per cent, including an 81 per cent gain in large pickup deliveries. Sales to rental customers were down 6 per cent.
