The Zeta-platform car saw its best monthly sales since its release in FebruaryEnlarge Photo
The final tally for February was 2,707 of the roomy sedans sold, up 1,376 from the 1,331 sold in January, and up 27% from the previous best sales month for the car, which happened in April, 2008.
At the same time, General Motors' overall sales fell over 50% against February 2008 to just 53,813 cars. Nevertheless, the high sales numbers for the high-value - and in GT and GXP trims, high-performing - sedan hint that the future may not be as bleak as it had seemed just a few short months ago.
You do have to wonder, however, how much money Pontiac is actually making after about $3,000 in incentives on each car.
