Overall increase of 12.2% in 2010

General Motors said on Jan. 24 that it sold 8.3 million vehicles in 2010, a 12.2% increase, compared to 7.4 million in 2009.

The company achieved double-digit increases in five of its top 10 markets, including the 28.8% increase in China, where the Detroit-based firm and its partners were the first to top the two-million sales mark in a single year.

It also reported an increase of 41.3% in Uzbekistan in Central Asia, which is now GM's tenth-largest market by volume.

Deliveries in the United States, GM's second largest market, rose 6.3% despite the phase-out or sale of four brands, while Brazil, GM's third-largest market, saw deliveries rise by 10.4%.

Sales also increased in Russia, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

GM, however, suffered some significant setbacks particularly in Germany where sales dropped 29.5% and Italy where sales fell 10%.
