General Motors Co, Chrysler Group and Nissan Motor Co on Tuesday reported higher-than-expected U.S. new car sales in May, with consumer demand continuing to gather strength as temperatures rise across the country.
GM and Chrysler said May sales were the best in seven years, and Nissan set a sales record for the month.
GM’s May sales were up 12.6 percent to 284,694, well above the consensus of nine analysts polled by Reuters. All four GM brands reported sales increases, with gains at Chevrolet and GMC driven in part by strong demand for new full-size utility vehicles and pickups.
