GM's China operations sold their 2 millionth vehicle during 2014 last month. It marks the five straight years they've hit that mark.

General Motors and Ford continued to roll up record sales in China last month where both companies are continuing to expand their presence in what has become the world’s largest automotive market.

In addition, GM has now sold more than 2 million vehicle in China, marking the fifth consecutive year and the earliest ever that GM has reached the milestone.
