General Motors India crosses 1,00,000 unit milestone

Bangalore: General Motors (GM) India said on Monday it has crossed the one-lakh unit sales mark in a calendar year for the first time since its inception in the country.

The company achieved the feat on 27 November, meeting its yearly target with over a month still to go.

It has registered growth of more than 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, the company said in a statement.

“This historic feat has been achieved due to the growing popularity and the overwhelming response to Chevrolet Beat and Cruze," the statement said.

GM India vice-president P. Balendran said: “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".
