General Motors new car sales, including 
for vehicles like the Buick LaCrosse,
rose 23% percent in January 2011.
General Motors reported strong sales for the month of January 2011, which follows a recent announcement of adding over 650 jobs at the Flint Assembly Plant in Flint, Michigan

The automaker reported 178,896 total sales in January, marking a 23 percent increase from a year ago for the company’s four brands, Buick, Chevrolet Cadillac and GMC. 

The gain was driven by retail dealer sales that experienced a 36 percent increase from January 2010. Specifically, sales of General Motors cars, trucks and crossovers vehicles all rose during the month, up 39 percent, 34 percent and 35 percent, respectively.
“January was a good month and signaled a solid start to the New Year for each of our divisions,” said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations.  “Our results were driven by gains across the board in all segments, with our newest models leading the way.”
Combined sales for manufacturers’ newest vehicles: Chevrolet Equinox, Silverado HD, Cruze and Volt; Buick LaCrosse and Regal; GMC Sierra HD and Terrain; and Cadillac SRX, CTS Wagon and CTS Coupe, increased 31 percent, while retail sales surged 61 percent for the month.
