General Motors sold over 9 million vehicles worldwide in 2005, surpassing that mark for only the second time in its history (the only other year that this happened was in 1978). The total of 9.17M vehicles provided a 2% bump from its 2004 numbers.
While the company's North American operations continue to suffer, performance in its three other regions of operation - Asia Pacific, Europe, and Latin America/Middle East/Africa - outpaced the markets in those areas, and led to GM selling more vehicles overseas than in the US for the first time ever. Probably the most encouraging news comes from China, where GM became the top foreign automaker last year.
