2015 was a big year for the automotive industry, both in the United States and around the globe. Total sales of automobiles reached record highs, as more cars were sold last year than ever before. The automaker leading the charge in the ongoing rebound of the American automotive market was General Motors.
As top dog, General Motors was the top-selling auto brand in 2015 in North America, South America, and China. The automaker 3.6 million vehicles in North America and China each, proving that GM is still on the rise.
“GM continued to grow in 2015 as our focus on the customer and successful new vehicle launches more than offset the challenging conditions in South America and the curtailment of our presence in certain markets such as Russia,” said GM President Dan Ammann.
The GM brand with the biggest success story in 2015 was Chevrolet, which continued to be the best-selling badge in GM’s portfolio year after year. In fact, Chevy’s total sales increased 5% in 2015, exceeding 2.1 million and greatly contributing to the stunning 9.8 million vehicles sold by GM around the globe last year.
Despite those high numbers, each one of those vehicles were made with care and quality, just like the Chevy models we’re selling at Dale Earnhardt Chevy in 2016.
