GM posts a truly terrible June


You almost have to feel bad for General Motors, but the bad news just keeps coming. This time it’s monthly sales for June, and it isn’t pretty.

Overall sales were down a whopping 25.9% in June from June of the previous year. Before we get into the really bad news, let’s start with the good news – GM passenger car sales actually increased by almost 1%. Pontiac was the brightest spot. Big love for the Solstice drove sales up by 12.1% overall. Saturn was also up about 0.7% thanks largely to the Sky.

The rest of the news is not nearly as good. Buick fell 36.6%, Cadillac fell 21%, Chevy dropped by 25.5%, and Hummer dropped 16.2%. The two ugliest marks, though, are definitely GMC and Saab. The former plummeted by 46.5% and the latter crashed by 50.2%.
