General Motors Co. sold 582,401 vehicles in the U.S. in the second quarter of 2022, and the company increased its sales and market share sequentially for the third consecutive quarter.

GM’s second quarter sales were down 15% year over year, but market share was up 1 point to an estimated 16.3% (J.D. Power PIN).
