General Motors India crossed the 100,000 unit mark on November 27, 2010, meeting its yearly target with over a month still to go. This is the first time the company has crossed 1 lakh unit mark in a calendar year since it’s inception in India. The company has registered a growth of over 63% from January to November 2010, compared to the corresponding period last year. It has crossed the 100,000-unit mark in this period, as against 61,321 units sold in the same period last year. This feat has been achieved due to the growing popularity of the Chevrolet Beat and Cruze. Spark also continues to register impressive sales. Other car lines have also registered impressive growth in this period. In the next couple of months, Chevrolet will complete 100 years of its successful operations globally.
“This is a momentous occasion and a historic milestone for all of us at GM India. We are very excited by the tremendous response that we have received from our valued customers. Introduction of best-in-segment cars from the 300 series, rapid network expansion for increased customer outreach, our unique value proposition like Chevrolet Cashless Ownership offer, innovative marketing initiatives and our promise to deliver quality and performance are the factors that have led to this achievement. The economic growth that in turn propelled the growth in the automobile sector has resulted in sustaining this momentum,” Mr. P. Balendran, Vice President, GM India said.
