Seems like Cadillac sold about two thousand ATS'. I wonder why the press release did not highlight that?
Perhaps because of reactions from people in the USA? Meaning there have been several complaints I've read on GMI that the styling of the CTS and ATS were "blanded down" for Chinese tastes. The better the sales in China mean that the better chance of future vehicles having their styling still leaning towards bland to appease Chinese tastes. Just a thought, otherwise no clue.

So how much does the Chinese Government allow GM to make on these sales?

I don't think it was that high, (SRX was 2nd best at 2,013) what other models do they sell over there?

They also sell the CTS (less than a couple hundred) and Escalade (less than a dozen) so by elimination they must have sold in the region of 1800 to 1900 ATS'.

Ford was at 906,613 at the end of October (up 22% from 2013). Probably another 100k for Nov. Nice to see GM own this market.

Not a question of what the Chinese govt allows GM to make.

These press releases always tout the sales volumes with usually no mention of profitability. There's some profit but nowhere near what's made in NA despite the high sales.

Conversely, VW and MB are wildly profitable there.

At least some of the taxpayer's bailout dollars is actually working - the minimum of $5 billion diverted from saving American jobs that ended up going to China to expand operations there (and to satisfy the only idiots who would buy the debt that was needed to finance this fiasco). The Chinese are very happy - they'll get their money back (as the Treasury buys the debt from them and pays them their interest since no one else will) - and they'll get modern production facilities to employ their workers that need jobs. China made out like bandits!
