GM China sales growth slumps
Beijing, April 3 (BNA) -- General Motors, the biggest overseas carmaker in China, said yesterday its sales growth in the world's largest car market had slowed sharply year-on-year in the first quarter. The US automobile giant said it sold 685,583 vehicles over the first three months of 2011, exactly 10 per cent more than during the first three months of 2010. GM said it sold 233,014 vehicles in China last month, against 230,048 vehicles in March last year, an increase of just 1.3pc. The slowdown in market growth, predicted by analysts, is seen as a consequence of the end of incentives offered by the Chinese government during the 2008-2009 financial crisis.
