General Motors India on Monday said its sales grew by 2.54 percent to 8,468 units in December, 2010, from 8,258 units in the same month of the previous year.

Achieving these levels of growth also clearly reflects customers' confidence in our products. We are pleased to see such robust growth for all our car lines and we believe these world-class products will further propel the ChevroletBrand in the market, GM India Vice-President P Balendran said in a statement.

In December last year, the company sold 2,691 Spark hatchbacks, 623 Cruze sedans and 2,523 units of its latest compact car offering, Beat, the statement added.

It also sold 271 units of its premium hatchback, Aveo U- Va, 258 units of entry-level sedan Aveo, 288 units of mid- sized sedan Optra, 1,694 units of multi-utility Vehicle Tavera and 120 units of its Captiva SUV.

In the entire 2010 calendar year, GM India sold a total of 110,804 units, compared to 69,579 units a year ago, translating into a growth of 59.25 per cent.

It may be recalled that the company has crossed the 100,000 units-mark for the first time since the inception of the company in India on November 27, 2010. The milestone in sales was achieved primarily because of the overwhelming response to Beat, Spark and Cruze, the statement said.    

Earlier, last month the carmaker 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 Indian market.

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.
