Oshawa, Ontario — Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealers delivered 25,071 vehicles in April 2013, an increase of 19 per cent for the month and the best performance in April since 2009.
“We experienced strong sales in virtually all of our vehicle segments in April,” said Marc Comeau, GM of Canada’s vice-president of sales, service and marketing. “We’re optimistic for the remainder of 2013 as we continue with our aggressive launch plans, including the all new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra which will be available later this year.”
The all-new 2014 Chevrolet Impala began arriving at dealerships in mid-April. Buick is launching redesigns of the Regal and LaCrosse in the summer and Cadillac will launch an all-new CTS luxury sedan in the fall. All of this comes on the heels of the recent successful launches of the urban small SUV, the Chevrolet Trax, and the small luxury crossover, the Buick Encore.
Additionally, customers can also benefit from our exclusive partnership with AIR MILES, offering up to 3,000 AIR MILES reward miles for a new vehicle purchase or lease during the months of May and June.
