GM Canada Sales Charge Forward With 15 Percent Increase In June
GM Canada’s strong sales growth
continued into June 2015, as Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC dealers in Canada delivered 24,226 vehicles last month, a whopping 15 percent increase over the same period last year.
The best news? It wasn’t just one particular brand or vehicle that helped buoy the sizeable sales lift. Every single brand (Buick up 29%; GMC 18%; Chevrolet 13%; and Cadillac up 13%) experienced massive gains. A great sign that all brands are being well-received.
In fact, Canada is the third largest market in the world for Cadillac and the second-fastest growing market aside from China! The company’s performance last month continues to drive its sales success in 2015, up 11 percent year to date.
“In June, we continued to see resilience in Canadian consumer auto purchases, with particular strength in the western provinces as customers continued to drive especially strong purchases of the Chevrolet Trax, Equinox and Silverado, Buick Encore and Enclave, GMC Terrain and Sierra and Cadillac SRX,” said John Roth, vice president, sales, service and marketing GM Canada.
Here are some other highlights for June 2015:
