Chevrolet Returns To Number One In 2011 Passenger Car Sales

Chevrolet posted its best annual retail sales increase in 35 years. Fueled by the wildly successful sales of the Cruze compact sedan, sales of Chevrolet compact cars nearly doubled over 2010.

"Leading the U.S. industry in passenger car sales in our centennial year proves that we have transformed the Chevrolet product lineup and are delivering the high-quality, fuel-efficient, expressively designed cars that more and more people want,” said Alan Batey, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service. “We are confident we can continue to build on the momentum with the new Sonic and the new Malibu Eco arriving in dealer showrooms in the coming weeks,” Batey added.

U.S. sales of the Chevrolet Cruze totaled 231,732 last year. As the best-selling Chevrolet nameplate, the Cruze has sold over 1 million units in the three short years since it’s launch.

Another fact contributing to Chevrolet’s sales jump is the the Chevrolet Silverado pickup as the second best selling vehicle in the U.S. with over 415,130 sold, a 12.2 percent jump from 2011.

The all-new Sonic posted a 52 percent jump up and over the vehicle it replaced and the refreshed fifth-generation Camaro racked up sales of 88,000, up 8 percent from last year.
