(Bloomberg) -- General Motors Co.'s passenger-car venture in China sold its millionth unit this year.
The company delivered the car, a Buick Lacrosse, to its buyer in Shanghai this month, GM's Chinese partner SAIC Motor Corp. said in a statement posted on its website.
This year, Shanghai GM has sold about 500,000 Buick, 490,000 Chevrolet and 16,000 Cadillac models.
GM expects to sell as many as 2.3 million vehicles, including minivans, in China this year and for sales to increase as much as 15 percent in 2011. China is the largest market by unit sales for the U.S. automaker.
China's passenger-car deliveries to dealers rose 29 percent to 1.34 million in November as customers rushed to take advantage of government incentives supporting vehicle-buying that may expire at the end of the year, according to figures from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
