General Motors reported a slight decrease in sales during the first quarter, mainly due to challenges with its fleet business. However, the company still maintained its position as the best-selling automaker in the United States. Despite the overall decline, General Motors sold 594,233 new vehicles from January to March, which was only a 1.5% decrease compared to the previous year. Retail sales actually increased by 6% over the same period, helping General Motors surpass Toyota as the top-selling automaker in the U.S.

Despite the decline in sales for General Motors, there were some bright spots for certain brands and product lines. The company’s pickup lineup saw a significant increase in sales, with a 3.6% growth, making it the best quarter since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. In contrast, sales of General Motors’ electric vehicles dropped due to software issues and production delays, particularly affecting the Chevrolet Bolt. Fleet sales for the automaker decreased by approximately 23% compared to the previous year.

Among General Motors’ brands, only Buick reported an increase in sales, which went up by 16.4% year-over-year. While overall pickup deliveries improved, GMC experienced a 5% decline in sales. Sales for Chevrolet and Cadillac also slightly decreased compared to the previous year.
