Continued Growth for GM Brands in Canada

Continued Growth in Canada for GM Brands

For many years, GM has had a strong presence in Canada with some assembly and manufacturing plants in the country. As we see this automaker continue to work toward offering the brands and models created around the world, it’s good to see that Canadian customers still trust GM and look to this company for some of the vehicles they choose to drive. This is evident by the number of models that were sold in this country last month in order to make sure these customers have the drive needed for the ride desired on the roads.

For October, GM reported an increase in the numbers sold over the previous year of 26.5 percent. This increase came to a total of 26,847 models sold in the country between the brands of Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC, and Buick. This makes GM the best-selling automaker in terms of sales volume in Canada. Increases in sales forf models like Chevrolet Sonic and Spark as well as the GMC Sierra 1500 show that while there is a desire to move in a greener direction, there is still a significant need for gas-powered vehicles that can deliver top-of-the-line power. This is certainly worth further discussion to see how these numbers break down and make it possible for the brand to offer both retail and fleet models that are trusted by the population of Canada when looking for the right vehicle to drive and enjoy on the road.
