Chevrolet led all automakers in U.S. passenger car sales in 2011 and posted its largest year-over-year retail sales increase in 35 years, due in large part to strong sales of the Cruze compact sedan. Chevrolet compact car sales almost doubled compared with 2010.
“Leading the U.S. industry in passenger car sales in our centennial year proves that we have transformed the Chevrolet product lineup and are delivering the high-quality, fuel-efficient, expressively designed cars that more and more people want,” said Alan Batey, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Sales and Service.
Chevrolet sold more than 763,000 passenger cars in 2011. Products included the Sonic subcompact, Cruze compact sedan, Volt electric car, Malibu and Impala sedans, and Camaro and Corvette sporty cars.
