In June, General Motors sales were affected by a 45% drop in rental deliveries. GM said it planned this decrease to reduce rental sales in favor of retail and commercial business, which tend to be more profitable.

Retail deliveries climbed 7% year over year, with top sales for Cadillac (12% increase) and a 9% increase at Chevrolet. According to GM, June 2015 was the best June for retail deliveries since 2007 and its best June for retail market share since 2011.

Additionally, GM increased its sales to commercial customers and state and local government fleets.
