General Motors - vehicle sales by country 2020

China was the largest single target market for General Motors in 2020. During the 2020 fiscal year, the Detroit company and its associations sold some 2.9 million motor vehicles to customers in China, the world’s largest automobile market. Overall, GM’s dealers, distributors, and joint ventures reported vehicle sales of some 6.8 million units, almost 5.5 million of which occurred in China and the United States.  

 Ownership cap

  China began to deregulate its automotive sector in the mid-1990s but prohibited foreign firms from owning more than 50 percent of stakes in joint ventures. General Motors joined forces with Shanghai-based SAIC on June 12, 1997. The SAIC Motor Corporation, which is also involved in a partnership with Volkswagen, was the leading automobile manufacturer in China in 2018 with car sales of just under three million units. Currently, the SAIC-GM joint venture sells vehicles under the Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac brands. General Motors also sells commercial vehicles in collaboration with the Changchun-headquartered automotive manufacturing company FAW Group Corporation.
