6 Feb 2006
GENERAL Motors has announced a mammoth $US4.8 billion loss for the fourth quarter of 2005.
Announced last Thursday, the Q4 loss was blamed on high costs, shrinking market share and sluggish sales of sport utility vehicles.
The world’s largest car-maker said the loss amounted to $8.45 a share, compared with a year earlier loss of $99 million, or 18 cents a share.
