The company saw its sales double in China in November versus the same month a year before, reaching 177,339 vehicles, according to the company's top market analyst Mike DiGiovanni. In the U.S. sales dipped 2% year-on-year to 151,427 units.

The figures were enough to boost GM's share of the burgeoning Chinese market by 13%..

"China was once again an outstanding level of sales," said DiGiovanni, adding that in November one in every four cars were sold in China.
