Is GM American or Chinese?

There are all sorts of extenuating circumstances, from different seasons to CNY to yes, the extraordinary fireball that is the US auto-market right now, but still, this has some significance, from the NYT:

“For the first time, more vehicles were sold in China last month than in the United States, according to figures from General Motors.”

Later today what I want to check is whether GM produces more cars in the US or China. Now if those two numbers crossed it’d mean the US were bailing out a Chinese company …

UPDATE : whoops, GM was comparing total vehicle sales in China to passenger sales in the US. Guess they were just trying to make a splashy point. Still doesn’t say much for their market analysis team though.
