General Motors India on Wednesday said its sales climbed 17.67 per cent to 8,376 units in November compared to 7,118 units during the same month year ago.

Introduction of best-in-segment cars from the 300 series, increase in customer outreach through distribution network and our unique value proposition like Chevrolet Cashless Ownership offer are the factors that have led to impressive sales, GM India Vice President P Balendran said in a statement.

The company sold 2,786 units of the hatchback Spark, 617 units of the sedan Cruze and 2,547 units of the latest compact car Beat in the reporting month, the statement said.

The car maker also sold 291 units of premium hatchback Aveo U-Va, 297 units of the entry-level sedan Aveo, 262 units of the mid-sized sedan Optra, 1,476 units of the multi-utility vehicle Tavera and 100 units of the SUV Captiva.

The company had earlier ramped up production by adding the second shifts at Halol and Talegaon plants to meet the increased demand of its products.

GM India is also rapidly expanding sales and service network to support the increasing market demand of its cars, the statement added.

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.

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.
