GM in Japan


General Motors began doing business in Japan in 1915, when it introduced the Buick and Cadillac brands to local consumers. As the second largest vehicle market in Asia Pacific and the third largest market worldwide, Japan remains a key part of GM’s regional strategy.

GM’s operations in Japan are centered around General Motors Asia Pacific (Japan) Ltd. Located in Tokyo, it oversees support functions including finance, strategic planning, information systems and services, purchasing and logistics, human resources, corporate communications and corporate affairs. It also functions as GM’s national sales company in Japan and has responsibility for the sale and marketing of GM vehicles as well as after sales operations.

GM offers a comprehensive lineup of imported products from North America, Europe and Asia Pacific under the Chevrolet and Cadillac nameplates. GM sold 10,181 vehicles in Japan in 2009.
