Canadian GM Sales Decrease by 2.8 Percent

By Tyler Sutherland

General Motors saw a 2.8 percent decrease in the amount of vehicles it delivered to Canadians in 2010.

Data released Monday showed the auto maker delivered 254,257 vehicles in 2009, compared to 247,104 last year. The biggest drop came in China., where vehicle sales fell by 28 percent in 2009. GM delivered 2,351,610 vehicles in 2010, next to the U.S. at 2,215,227.

The most popular brand GM pushes continues to be Chevrolet, selling 4,271,189 of them worldwide in 2010, up 21 percent from 2009.

Market analysts say the increase in sales last year in some markets came from economic recovery and consumer confidence rising after the effects of the 2009 recession.
