The automaker said it sold a total of 346,100 vehicles in the regions during the quarter, up 52,100 vehicles from the same period a year earlier. GM's market share for the regions grew to 17.5 percent from 16.8 percent previously.
Sales grew 36 percent in Africa.

The Chevrolet Corsa, Celta and Aveo remained the top-selling vehicles across Latin America, Africa and the Middle East.
