Chevrolet poised to sell 5 million vehicles in 2013
When business is good, everything else seems to fall into place. What is good for one business, is generally good for the masses. Increased sales, higher customer retention, and overall satisfaction tend to have a ripple effect on the rest of the economy – so when news breaks that a large corporation in the United States is doing well, we can’t help but celebrate. When the good news is regarding Chevrolet and their record-breaking car sales for the year, we get downright giddy.
General Motors has announced that its high-volume Chevrolet division is positioned to reach five million sales for the first time ever in a fiscal year. Just last year, 4.95 million Chevy’s sold worldwide, with 65% of those sales from outside of the United States. Most surprisingly, is the high demand for Chevrolet’s in the Middle East, which has been in the news lately for its notorious unrest. “We haven’t seen what’s happening in Egypt, Syria, or Lebanon affect the overall market. The Egyptian market is exceeding their sales forecast,” John Stadwick, GM regional president and managing director had to say regarding the results.
At General Motors continues their global expansion of Chevrolet, the brand expects to become a more mainstream division worldwide rather than the regional brand it has been in the past. Four months are left in the current selling year, and General Motors is confident that Chevrolet will reach five million vehicle sales by the time 2013 comes to a close. The boom in business means a reassuring boost in the American economy, and an optimistic future for vehicle production in the U.S.
