Opel Increases Market Share in Europe, GM Still not Happy

Opel has increased its share in Europe this year, with sales rising 6% up to May, giving the brand a market share of 7.4%, compared to 7% in 2010. So mother company GM must be satisfied, right?

However, they cannot be sold in prices similar to direct competitors such as Volkswagen because they lack their rivals’ image.
