Two years following the automaker’s historic bankruptcy, General Motors is once again the world’s car-selling king.
GM sold just over nine million vehicles worldwide in 2011. That’s 11% more than Volkswagen, which sold 8.1 million.
It also marked a 7.6% gain over 2010.
Fueling the surge was Chevrolet, posting sales of four-point-seven-six million vehicles around the world.
Gm says more than 15 markets experienced record Chevrolet sales in 2011, with the largest year-over-year increases in Peru, Vietnam, Thailand, South Africa and Israel.
