Management Discussion of November Sales Results

“We continue to be encouraged by the latest information which shows the U.S. economy strengthening,” said Mike DiGiovanni, executive director, Global Market and Industry Analysis. “For example, we estimate that housing starts will probably rise to about 600,000 to 650,000 by the end of 2010, which will have a positive effect on the economy and will also help support improvement in light-duty pickup truck sales.”

GM still factors non-core brands into the final sales report.

Saw this on autoblog. I hope Chrysler Corp survives. All the other major manufacturers posted an increase in daily sales rate, yet they were down 19%. Also, using daily sales rate, GM posted an increase of 6.3%.

One thing that I found very interesting is that the two brands at opposite extremes for size both posted the largest declines, Smart is down 70% while Hummer was down a whopping 85%.
