GM June U.S. Sales Improve 11 Percent  General Motors dealers in the United States reported 215,358 total sales in June, an 11-percent gain compared to June 2010. The gain was the result of continued solid retail demand for the company’s wide selection of fuel-efficient vehicles. Retail sales for GM’s brands rose 16 percent for the month, compared to a year ago, and were 4 percent higher than May.

For the month, Chevrolet Cruze had retail sales 153 percent higher than the Chevrolet Cobalt it replaced, and total sales above 20,000 for the third straight month. The 32 MPG highway-rated GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Equinox compact crossovers saw a combined retail sales increase of 78 percent during the month. Passenger car and crossover retail sales also rose substantially, up 33 percent and 24 percent, respectively.

Total sales for GM’s full-size pickups – Chevrolet Silverado and Avalanche, and GMC Sierra, rose 15 percent compared to May, while retail sales increased 20 percent from last month.

"With continued strong consumer demand for GM’s fuel-efficient vehicles, June was another solid month for us," said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations. “The month caps a successful first half of 2011 for us in the U.S. market – our sales are up and we’ve gained share profitably.”
