GM tops Volkswagen in China for car sales and it is all about branding. Volkswagen has been in China for a very long time and was one of the first car manufacturers in China. Many taxis use the Volkswagen brand and it is now not a prestige name in China. Chinese want western brands and GM is a perfect brand for them and Buick is especially a top car brand. Many of our friends and family have purchases, GM Spark, Cruze, Buicks and Cadillac’s and enjoyed showing them off. They like taking me for rides in their new cars but I enjoy a ride on a scooter more than the cars. It is funny we enjoy thinks we do not have and verse versa. I enjoy a scooter ride more than a car ride because I have always had a car and the opposite is true for the Chinese. Our friends enjoy KFC because it is new to them and rarely do I eat KFC in the US because again I have had it available to me all my life. It is probably true with the Volkswagen brand in China it has been around for a long time and now the new GM is available. GM is my favorite brand and my first car was a 1978 Chevrolet Camaro!
Passionate for everything related to China travel.
