* Car Retail Sales Driven By Malibu Up 62 Percent; CTS Up 71 Percent; Cobalt Up 24 Percent; Aura Up 21 Percent; and G6 Up 6 Percent
* Cadillac Car Sales Up 24 Percent; Chevrolet Cars Up 3 percent
* Enclave, Acadia and Outlook Drive Mid-Utility Crossover Segment Up 15 Percent


DETROIT - GM dealers in the United States delivered 270,423 vehicles in February, a decrease of 13 percent compared with an unusually strong February last year.

"Our new launch vehicles, including the award-winning Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac CTS, had a sensational month, as did the Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Aura, and the Pontiac G6," said Mark LaNeve, vice president, GM North America Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing. "Most importantly, despite tough market conditions, we anticipate our total retail vehicle sales share to have remained flat for the first two months of the year compared to 2007. We are encouraged by our performance in the key passenger car categories, and while the overall market for trucks is challenging, we anticipate holding our share for full-size pickups and utilities." Truck sales declined 20 percent compared with a year ago.

GM's fuel-efficient cars saw strong growth. Chevrolet Cobalt total sales were up 56 percent with retail up 24 percent; Pontiac G6 was up 50 percent total and 6 percent retail; and Buick LaCrosse total sales were up 12 percent compared with February 2007.

The Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook together accounted for more than 11,000 vehicle sales in the month, an increase of 94 percent compared with the same month last year. Outlook sales were up 15 percent; Acadia sales increased 39 percent; and there were more than 3,800 Buick Enclaves sold.

Also of note, the Chevrolet Equinox compact crossover utility had total sales of more than 8,600 vehicles for a 15 percent increase, and a retail sales increase of 8 percent compared to a year ago.

"Our sales increase at Cadillac shows the power of new products to attract consumers - even in a tough market," LaNeve added. "Additionally, Saturn Outlook had a 15 percent total sales increase, illustrating that vehicle's contribution to the mid-utility crossover segment performance. We remain focused on offering vehicles that have industry-leading value, great fuel economy and the best warranty coverage of any full-line automaker."
