General Motors India said it has crossed 100,000 units in sales in India and this is the first time it has crossed the mark in a calendar year since its foray into India.

The company registered a growth of over 63 percent from January to November 2010, compared to the corresponding period last year. It has crossed the 100,000-unit mark in this period, as against 61,321 units sold in the same period last year. 

 Introduction of best-in-segment cars from the 300 series, rapid network expansion for increased customer outreach, our unique value proposition like Chevrolet Cashless Ownership offer, innovative marketing initiatives and our promise to deliver quality and performance are the factors that have led to this achievement. The economic growth that in turn propelled the growth in the automobile sector has resulted in sustaining this momentum, P. Balendran, Vice President, GM India said.

General Motors India has completed 14 years of operation. GM India started its journey in 1996 and now offers products under the Chevrolet brand, which was introduced in India in 2003.  

The car maker offers the Chevrolet Captiva, Chevrolet Optra, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Aveo, Chevrolet Aveo U-VA, Chevrolet Spark, Chevrolet Beat and Chevrolet Tavera for sale in India and has manufacturing facilities in Halol, Gujarat, and Talegaon, Maharashtra.
