SHANGHAI, Feb 15 (Reuters) - U.S. automobile giant General Motors sold about 59,000 Buick and Sail cars in China in 2001, almost double from 30,000 units in 2000, a GM China spokeswoman said on Friday.

"Our sales last year were about 59,000 (units)," GM China spokeswoman Daphne Zheng told Reuters. "That was both for Buick and Buick Sail."

The U.S. company's venture Shanghai GM sold close to 29,800 of its Sail family car in 2001, which first began deliveries last June, company officials said.
