Strong Buick sales take GM by surprise in China

Published on .

Beijing--Shanghai General Motors will double its production of Buick cars in 2000 in an effort to meet unexpectedly high orders for its mid-size cars. The joint venture between U.S.-based General Motors Corp. and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. is increasing 2000 production levels to 50,000 cars from 37,000, according to a report in China Daily. Production in 1999 is expected to reach 23,000 Buicks. Since May, when the model was introduced, Shanghai GM has received more than 20,000 orders, a quarter more than expected.
