Things Have Never Been So Good for GM Brazil

Brazilian ChevroletPlummeting automobile sales may by a worldwide concern, but not for
General Motors Brazil (GM), which posted a monthly record-high sales
figure in the Brazilian domestic market in June. The company sold
58,647 vehicles under the Chevrolet brand during the month, thus
exceeding by 3,018 units its previous record, attained in July 2008.

In June, there was growth of 22.5% over May, according to information supplied by the press office at GM Brazil. Performance in June was the best in the company's 84 years in the Brazilian market. In comparison with June last year, sales rose by 12.5%.

According to the president of GM for Brazil and the Mercosur, Jaime Ardila, the figure is a reason for pride, and goes to show that Brazilian consumers trust the future of the company in Brazil.

"To those faithful consumers, GM is a Brazilian company that offers the most complete line of vehicles in the market, and has the best dealership chain in the country, which is the Chevrolet chain," he said.

GM owns three industrial complexes in Brazil, in the municipalities of São Caetano do Sul and São José dos Campos, in the state of São Paulo, and in Gravataí­, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

There are other units in Mogi das Cruzes, Sorocaba and Indaiatuba, in São Paulo, and a technological center for engineering and design in São Caetano do Sul. The Brazilian subsidiary is one of five global centers for vehicle design and development.

Last year, GM Brazil achieved its annual sales record, with 548,941 vehicles sold and leadership positions recorded by the Chevrolet brand in four different segments.

GM Brazil is the second largest operation outside of the United States, second only to the company's unit in China.
