GM Korea, the third largest automaker in South Korea after Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors revealed yesterday that sales of Cadilac cars during the first quarter of 2010 have risen to 191 units. The number represents an increase of more than 100 percent compared to the first quarter of 2009.
During the month of March 73 new Cadillacs were sold in Korea, marking an increase of 92 percent from the same month last year, the automaker said.
The company attributed the increase to the launch of new vehicles and the expansion of its retail network. Two new showrooms were opened in Seoul and Daejeon during the second half of last year, and GM Korea signed A&G Motors on as a new dealer in December.
According to the statement, GM Daewoo plans to open another showroom in southern Seoul in the second half of 2010 to further strengthen its sales network and increase its sales to more than 100 vehicles per month. [Source: Koreaherald]
