GM predicts more China headwinds in 2020 as 2019 sales fall 15.1% YOY

General Motors Co.'s sales in China dropped 15.1% in 2019 on a year-over-year basis, the automaker said Jan. 7.

GM said it sold 3.1 million vehicles in China during 2019 compared with 3.6 million in 2018.

Each of the company's brands was down in 2019 except for Cadillac, whose sales were up 3.9% at 213,717 vehicles, according to the news release. The automaker added the Cadillac CT5 luxury sedan and the XT6 luxury SUV as part of its global plan to introduce a new model every six months.

Sales of Chevrolet brand vehicles were down 20.1% in 2019, with 418,000 units sold.

In the fourth quarter of 2019, GM said it sold 836,174 vehicles, down 13.3% from the fourth quarter of 2018.

GM is focused on strengthening its product lineup as China undergoes an economic downturn, said Matt Tsien, GM's executive vice president and president of GM China.

"We expect the market downturn to continue in 2020, and anticipate ongoing headwinds in our China business," Tsien said in the release.

GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra previously said the company expected sales in China to remain weak through 2019, adding that GM is trying to be disciplined with its inventory levels in response to lower sales.
