Oshawa – For January 2009, General Motors of Canada dealers delivered 14,254 units. January Combined vehicle sales were -46.6%, cars -60.3%, trucks -34.0%.

“January sales continued to reflect the overall Canadian market challenges seen at the end of 2008,” said Marc Comeau, GM of Canada’s vice-president of sales, service and marketing. “GM's product lineup of new, affordable, fuel efficient vehicles is well positioned to respond to improving consumer credit and confidence we hope and expect to see in the months ahead as government stimulus efforts and other factors start to take hold in Canada.”

Comeau continued, “We look forward to the launch of the all new, Canadian-made Chevrolet Camaro and Equinox. In addition the all new Buick Allure continues the Buick renaissance which began with the popular Enclave. These new models deliver surprising fuel efficiency improvements and outstanding performance and design.”
