GM Worldwide Production Car/LCV By Nation : 2011-14


GM has 11.4% of the world volume for cars/LCVs and over a third of that is in China. The 50/50 joint venture in that nation has it's own range of vehicles too and some feel they should not be counted as GM production. However, that is a call GM chooses to make and that is how it is shown here. USA is the other major nation that GM makes cars/LCVs in and between the top two countries, over half of all production is sourced.

While they are on the up, many facilities elsewhere are reducing output. GM has realised being the biggest in the world isn't where it should strive to be. Profitable will do just nicely. Chevrolet being pulled out of Europe has seen the Korean volume retrench. Latin America and Europe have both likewise been doing it tough lately. So all in all, a solid performance which GM will hope will now improve.

The extreme right column shows the share that each country has of total production except for the bottom figure which is the share GM has of the world market.
