GM July sales in China up 11.1 percent


   General Motors Co. (GM) reported Monday that the automaker and its joint ventures sold record 221, 580 vehicles in China in July, up 11.1 percent year on year.

  Detroit News quoted the Detroit-based automaker as saying that it is the first time for GM to have its July sales exceed 200,000 units in China, which is partly attributable to a 25.7-percent jump in Buick sales and an 82.8-percent increase in Cadillac sales.
  GM and its joint ventures sold a total of 1.79 million vehicles in China in the first seven months of this year, up 10.7 percent year on year and also a record high.
