General Motors sales down 34% as coronavirus hammers industry

General Motors saw its sales drop 34% in the second quarter of the year, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic came more into focus.

Auto production was shut down for much of the quarter and stay-at-home and related orders in many places limited sales.

GM’s sales dropped from 746,659 to 492,489 for the period — April, May and June — compared with the same three months in 2019.

The company’s brands all experienced declines: Buick, 36%; Cadillac, 41%; Chevrolet, 34%; and GMC, 33%. But a handful of models showed some increases, such as the new Chevy Blazer.
