The CEO of General Motors (NYSE: GM), Dan Akerson, said he expected, Wednesday, that the automaker increase its share of the U.S. market to the detriment of its competitors, this year, its new vehicles knowing increasingly popular with consumers.

Mr. Akerson has said reporters that provided for a slight gain in the United States thanks to the arrival on the market of trucks Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the same as that of two Cadillac sedans. He also said he expected that the company knows of success on an international scale in the two years to come.

The head of GM, age 64, made the remarks in the presence of reporters at a roundtable Detroit. The share price of the manufacturer subsequently reached its highest level in 52 weeks, or U.S. $ 30.28, before retreating somewhat during the after-noon and close at U.S. $ 29.97, up 60 cents.

Although he has recorded substantial profits last year, the manufacturer has stumbled in key sectors. Its share of the U.S. market rose from 19.6 percent to 17.9 percent, its lowest in recent memory and perhaps even less important since the founding of GM in 1908.

GM's sales have increased by less than four per cent in the United States. Those of the industry as a whole have increased by 13 percent.
