上海通用汽车/Shanghai General Motors Company Limited (Shanghai GM) is a joint venture between General Motors and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). Shanghai GM manufactures and sells automobiles in mainland China. The company manufactures and sells Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac vehicles. Shanghai GM was founded on June 12, 1997 with 50% investment each from Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation and General Motors. In 2003, the PRC became the second largest single market for General Motors, and GM Shanghai had a 13% market share in mainland China, second only to Volkswagen Group China among foreign carmakers. However, sales dropped for 2004 with the retirement of the Buick Sail. Its replacement, the Chevrolet Sail, was delayed to February, 2005, leaving Shanghai GM in seventh place.

According to the company, in 2003, Shanghai GM sold 201,188 vehicles. This was an 81.6% percent increase over the previous year. Its share of mainland China's passenger car market grew to nearly 9.8 percent, placing Shanghai GM among the top three passenger car manufacturers in mainland China. Shanghai GM was the top passenger vehicle producer in China in 2006, with sales of 413,400 vehicles.

Chile is the first country that receives a completed car from Shanghai GM. In September 2006, the Chilean branch of GM launched the Chevrolet Corsa Plus, a Chinese version of the 4-door Opel Corsa with a 1.6L engine.
