General Motors (NYSE:GM): For GM, the good news seems to keep coming. The Associated Press has reported that GM sold 2.63 million vehicles for the first quarter, beating out global rival Volkswagen (VLKAY.PK) and lifting its quarterly sales 3.6 percent over the same quarter last year. Although VW gained 5 percent, year over year, its 2.27 million vehicles sold was not enough to take second place from GM. Both companies trail Toyota (NYSE:TM), which is set to release its sales numbers next week. Cadillac spearheaded GM’s growth, with sales up 26 percent thanks to an overhaul of its product lines to encourage younger buyers.
