General Motors sees sales rise in Korea and worldwide
General Motors said yesterday it has sold more than 2.44 million cars globally in the third quarter, its best sales record for the quarter since 1980.
The company said its sales volume was up by 2 percent from the second quarter and its overall sales from January to September increased by 2 percent over to last year, to more than 7.37 million cars.
General Motors explained that the growth resulted from strong sales in its two major markets, the United States and China. Its sales volume was up by 8 percent in the United States and up by 14 percent in China over the second quarter.
The company sold about 3.16 million cars in China last year and expects that number to go up this year. GM Korea sold 110,421 cars in the country last month, marking its best monthly sales record since it was established 12 years ago.
