Sales of the Buick Excelle GT have eclipsed 100,000 units since the four-door sedan launched in China in June 2010. General Motors says average monthly sales of 8,000 units demonstrate the "great popularity" of the Excelle GT among Chinese consumers.
The Excelle GT is offered with the choice of either a 1.8-liter naturally-aspirated engine that puts out 145 horsepower or a more potent 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mill pumping out 181 hp.
