CHICAGO, July 6 (Xinhua) -- General Motors Co. (GM) and its joint ventures in China sold more than 750,000 vehicles in China in the second quarter of this year, an increase of 5.2 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. automaker announced on its website on Tuesday.

The Detroit automaker attributed the strong performance to increased sales of luxury and premium vehicles, midsize/large SUVs and MPVs. Sales of new energy vehicles (NEVs) across GM's brands also posted a robust growth.

To be specific, GM sold over 225,000 Buicks in the second quarter, up 5.7 percent year on year; nearly 64,000 Cadillacs, up 9.1 percent; more than 63,000 Chevrolets; about 52,000 Baojuns; and over 346,000 Wulings, up 28 percent year on year.

Meanwhile, GM opened its GM China Advanced Design Center on Monday after an expansion and upgrade. The upgraded Advanced Design Center has a flexible, open layout that pushes the boundaries of modern design. It offers an immersive experience by fusing digitally and spatially interactive designs, an atrium with variable color temperatures and 27 rotating glass doors. This all comes together to create an avant-garde, sensory and inspirational creative space for the new generation of automotive designers to reimagine future mobility.

Established in November 2012 in Shanghai, the GM China Advanced Design Center is part of the GM China Advanced Technical Center and adjacent to the GM China Science Lab and Engineering Center. Its expansion commenced in October 2020.
