GM Worldwide Production By Nation:2012


GM's production of cars/LCVs for 2012 went up 2.8%, but world share dropped from 12 to 11.6%. Thailand (+90%), Russia (+34%) and China (+14%) were notable gains. Europe dragged GM down as it deals with lower demand on that continent.

In the chart below (which took so much time to load, thanks Google), the national production figures are colour coded to match regions. Asia Pacific for example is yellow. China is somewhat contentious as it includes cars made by its joint venture partner there. If that was removed, then the production for China would halve.
