General Motors on Thursday said its China auto sales in November rose 11 percent, led by strong demand of its Buick and Chevrolet models.

196,990 vehicles sold by GM and its ventures in China set a monthly record, as the company's 2010 sales in the world's biggest vehicle market shot past the 2 million mark, the auto giant said.

Domestic sales of Chevrolet products during the month totaled 58,977 units, an increase of 47.7 percent from last November. Both the Cruze lower-medium sedan and New Sail small car families set all-time records. Monthly sales of the Cruze surpassed 20,000 units for the first time, rising 71.8 percent year on year to 23,843 units. Demand for the New Sail, which entered the market at the beginning of 2010, reached 15,056 units.

GM China car sales in China for the first eleven months of this year were 2.17 million units, 32.7 percent more than in the same period of last year.
