General Motors - number of vehicles sold worldwide 2010-2020

This statistic shows the number of General Motors vehicles sold worldwide between 2010 and 2020. In 2020, General Motors sold about 6.8 million vehicles. This compares to around 8.4 million units in 2018, representing a decline of around 12 percent.

Coronavirus puts a brake on auto sales

GM’s brands include Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, and Cadillac, the first two of which were ranked within the top-eleven automobile manufacturers based on U.S. vehicle sales in the second quarter of 2020. Figures revealed a significant industry-wide decline in sales, with industry sales down by more than 30 percent compared with 2019’s second quarter. Furthermore, automobile manufacturers could be reckoning with a decline in vehicle sales following the outbreak of the coronavirus, and production and revenue are also expected to remain severely affected throughout the second half of the financial year.

GM accelerates future-proof innovations

With Tesla infamously driving innovation in the field of electric vehicles (EV), General Motors, along with other incumbent car manufacturers, are set to join the fiercely competitive U.S. electric vehicle industry. In 2019, Tesla sold just under 200,000 battery-electric vehicle units in the U.S. market – around 16 times more than Chevrolet. General Motors, however, plans to invest around 20 billion U.S. dollars in its EV product portfolio, including SUVs and pickups, by 2025.
