Car brands: General Motors - statistics & facts

General Motors continues to own several of the most iconic U.S.-built car brands, including Buick, Chevrolet, and Cadillac. Chevrolet is GM's most successful brand. Although the automaker assembles most of its cars in the United States, GM also manufactures a large percentage of its cars in Asia: Most of GM’s cars dedicated to the Chinese market are produced locally, and a Buick was the first car to be produced in Shanghai’s GM plant in 1998.

Several GM brands are particularly successful in the larger vehicle segments of the U.S. market. GM sells about 500,000 Ram pickups to customers in the United States annually. Meanwhile, the Chevrolet Equinox is the most successful sport utility vehicle in GM's product range.

General Motors was formed in 1908 under William C. Durant in Flint, Michigan. GM sold its European brands to PSA in March 2017. During the automotive industry crisis in 2008 and 2009, GM became vulnerable to the market recession. In 2009, the company was able to re-emerge due to a Chapter 11 reorganization backed by the government, allowing a “new GM” to purchase operational assets from the “old GM”.
