Default Chevy sells 2.35M vehicles worldwide in first half of year, best in 100 years

General Motors has announced that Chevrolet managed to sell a total of 2.35 million vehicles across 120 countries in the first half of 2011, marking the best half-year in the company'* history. That figure marks an increase of 286,499 vehicles over the same period last year thanks to record sales in countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Columbia, Denmark, Ecuador, France, South Africa and Turkey. The automaker also says that the swell is due in part to sales increases across its top five markets. Those include Canada, the U.*., Brazil, China and Russia. In other words, sales are up... pretty much everywhere.

Russia saw the greatest increase with its Chevrolet sales up 54 per cent compared to the same time period in 2010. General Motors attributes the increase to a wave of new models that include the Cruze, Spark, Sonic/Aveo and the Orlando. All told, the company managed to move a staggering 330,000 Cruze models in the first six months of 2012, globally, which is a 132 per cent increase over last year. Since the company has sold nearly 800,000 Cruze units since the model'* debut in 2009, Chevrolet expects to break the 1 million unit barrier by the end of this year.

Default Rebadged Daewoos?

How many Chevys were built in the USA?, over here Daewoo has been rebadged as Chevrolet, they are made in Korea.
They sell in reasonable numbers, they are no better or worse than most other cars in the UK market, but none of them are helping someone in the USA keep a job.

if you want to buy something made here you have to buy a VW, subaru, or toyota. there are still alot of GM parts made in this country though.

no doubt why the cruze is selling well though one of the guys at work just bought an ECO, there very nice. worlds different from the cav'* and cobalts

GM selling over seas helps keeps jobs here because the company is makign money and isn't looking to fire workers to save money.
