GM sales up 8% in December, advance 7% for 2010

Demand was up last month for all four of GM’s surviving U.S. brands, with sales advancing 40 percent at Buick, 13 percent at Cadillac, 9 percent at Chevrolet and 35 percent at GMC.

It was the fourth consecutive monthly sales increase for GM after its August sales dropped 25 percent, reflecting an unfavorable comparison to August 2009 — when the government’s cash-for- clunkers program fueled demand.

The automaker’s U.S. sales advanced 7 percent for all of 2010.
