GM August US Sales Up 7.5%

General Motors (GM) reported U.S. August deliveries of 275,552 vehicles, up 7.5 percent from a year ago. Retail deliveries were up 4 percent.

U.S. Commercial fleet deliveries were up 19 percent, and the company has gained domestic Commercial market share for 13 consecutive months. Total fleet deliveries were up 24 percent.

"Hurricane Harvey did have an adverse effect on deliveries during the last week of August for every automaker but the key U.S. economic fundamentals remain supportive of strong vehicle sales," said Mustafa Mohatarem, GM chief economist. "With the U.S. economy strengthening, we anticipate retail sales will be strong for the foreseeable future."
