General Motors has begun shipping China-built Chevrolet cars to North America, with an initial shipment last week of 2,900 Chevrolet Sail subcompacts to Mexico and the Caribbean.

The Sail is produced in the east China port of Yantai by the U.S. company’s joint venture with SAIC Motor Corp. That partnership, SAIC-GM, has expanded into new export markets with its China-built vehicles.

The company exports the Sail to emerging markets in Southeast Asia and South America. Last year it began exporting the Buick Envision compact crossover and the Cadillac CT6 plug-in hybrid to the United States.

For the first nine months, SAIC-GM says it exported 62,063 vehicles, up 23 percent from the same period last year.

Exports still account for a small portion of the joint venture’s total sales. Through September, SAIC-GM’s sales in China rose 5.8 percent to 1.36 million vehicles.
