We are on plan to deliver another strong year in 2018.” – Mary Barra, Chairman and CEO FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS IMPACT OF KOREA RESTRUCTURING Deliveries of GM’s newest crossovers in the U.S. and China doubled in the rst quarter year over year, led by the GMC Terrain, the Chevrolet Traverse and Equinox and the all-new Baojun 510 and 530. To build on this crossover success, Cadillac revealed the rst- ever XT4 in March, beginning the expansion of the brand’s successful SUV lineup. In the U.S., the Cadillac XT4 can be pre-ordered now, with the rst deliveries expected this fall. Cadillac will introduce, on average, one new model every six months through 2021. In March, adding to the strength of the GMC brand and Denali lineup, GM revealed the next-generation 2019 GMC Sierra Denali and SLT, and the all-new Sierra AT4 full-size pickups, which will go on sale later this year in North America. The Sierra AT4 introduces the all-terrain four-wheel drive AT4 sub-brand, which will be featured on every model in GMC’s lineup in the next two years. GM China, with its JV partners, plans to introduce 15 new and refreshed models in 2018, sharpening its focus on the strong SUV, MPV and luxury vehicle segments. About half of these products will be SUVs and MPVs. The rst of the 15 models, the Baojun 530 compact SUV, went on sale in March. PRODUCT MOMENTUM To continue to strengthen core business performance and address underper forming markets, GM announced its decision to cease production and close the Gunsan Korea plant by the end of May 2018. GM recorded a $942-million pre-tax charge, considered special for EBIT-adjusted and EPS diluted-adjusted, related to asset impairment and termination bene ts. The charge included $464 million in non-cash asset impairments. GM Reports Income of $1.1 Billion and EBIT-adjusted of $2.6 Billion As expected, rst-quarter free cash ow was meaningfully below the rst quarter of 2017 primarily due to planned, lower full-size truck production, and incremental capital spending to support the launches of GM’s all-new Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra and GEM. GM continues to expect its 2018 core adjusted automotive free cash ow to be in line with 2017 results as the company bene ts from strong EBIT- adjusted performance and favorable seasonal cash ow factors later this year.

Roof modules for GM’s self-driving vehicles will be assembled at its Brownstown plant. Having all AV capabilities under one roof has allowed GM to continue making signicant progress on its plans to achieve commercialization at scale in a dense, urban environment in 2019. DRIVING TO THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY The Chevrolet Bolt EV, Equinox, Traverse and Trax; Buick Encore and Envision; GMC Terrain; and Cadillac XT5 all set delivery records in the rst quarter. GM China’s rst-quarter sales reached an all-time high, delivering a record 986,052 units. Baojun’s growth of almost 20 percent in the quarter included the strong performance of its newest crossover, the Baojun 530, which sold 11,000 units after launching on March 11.

Exhibit 99.2

General Motors Company and Subsidiaries
Supplemental Material
(Unaudited)

Unless otherwise indicated, General Motors Company's (GM) non-GAAP measures are related to our continuing operations and not our discontinued operations. GM's non-GAAP measures include earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT)-adjusted, presented net of noncontrolling interests, Core EBIT-adjusted, earnings per share (EPS)-diluted-adjusted, effective tax rate-adjusted (ETR-adjusted), return on invested capital-adjusted (ROIC-adjusted), adjusted automotive free cash flow and Core adjusted automotive free cash flow. GM's calculation of these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences between companies in the method of calculation. As a result, the use of these non-GAAP measures has limitations and should not be considered superior to, in isolation from, or as a substitute for, related U.S. GAAP measures.

These non-GAAP measures allow management and investors to view operating trends, perform analytical comparisons and benchmark performance between periods and among geographic regions to understand operating performance without regard to items we do not consider a component of our core operating performance. Furthermore, these non-GAAP measures allow investors the opportunity to measure and monitor our performance against our externally communicated targets and evaluate the investment decisions being made by management to improve ROIC-adjusted. Management uses these measures in its financial, investment and operational decision-making processes, for internal reporting and as part of its forecasting and budgeting processes. Further, our Board of Directors uses certain of these and other measures as key metrics to determine management performance under our performance-based compensation plans. For these reasons we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful for our investors.

EBIT-adjusted EBIT-adjusted is presented net of noncontrolling interests and is used by management and can be used by investors to review our consolidated operating results because it excludes automotive interest income, automotive interest expense and income taxes as well as certain additional adjustments that are not considered part of our core operations. Examples of adjustments to EBIT include but are not limited to impairment charges on long-lived assets and other exit costs resulting from strategic shifts in our operations or discrete market and business conditions; costs arising from the ignition switch recall and related legal matters; and certain currency devaluations associated with hyperinflationary economies. For EBIT-adjusted and our other non-GAAP measures, once we have made an adjustment in the current period for an item, we will also adjust the related non-GAAP measure in any future periods in which there is a significant impact from the item.

Core EBIT-adjusted Core EBIT-adjusted is used by management and can be used by investors to review our core consolidated operating results. Core EBIT-adjusted begins with EBIT-adjusted and excludes the EBIT-adjusted results of our autonomous vehicle operations, including Cruise Automation Inc. (Cruise), Maven and our investment in Lyft.

EPS-diluted-adjusted EPS-diluted-adjusted is used by management and can be used by investors to review our consolidated diluted EPS results on a consistent basis. EPS-diluted-adjusted is calculated as net income attributable to common stockholders-diluted less income (loss) from discontinued operations on an after-tax basis, adjustments noted above for EBIT-adjusted and certain income tax adjustments divided by weighted-average common shares outstanding-diluted. Examples of income tax adjustments include the establishment or reversal of significant deferred tax asset valuation allowances.

ETR-adjusted ETR-adjusted is used by management and can be used by investors to review the consolidated effective tax rate for our core operations on a consistent basis. ETR-adjusted is calculated as Income tax expense less the income tax related to the adjustments noted above for EBIT-adjusted and the income tax adjustments noted above for EPS-diluted-adjusted divided by Income before income taxes less adjustments.

ROIC-adjusted ROIC-adjusted is used by management and can be used by investors to review our investment and capital allocation decisions. We define ROIC-adjusted as EBIT-adjusted for the trailing four quarters divided by ROIC-adjusted average net assets, which is considered to be the average equity balances adjusted for average automotive debt and interest liabilities, exclusive of capital leases; average automotive net pension and OPEB liabilities; and average automotive net income tax assets during the same period. Adjustments to the average equity balances exclude assets and liabilities classified as either assets held for sale or liabilities held for sale.

Adjusted automotive free cash flow Adjusted automotive free cash flow is used by management and can be used by investors to review the liquidity of our automotive operations and to measure and monitor our performance against our capital allocation program and evaluate our automotive liquidity against the substantial cash requirements of our automotive operations. We measure adjusted automotive free cash flow as automotive operating cash flow from continuing operations less capital expenditures adjusted for management actions. Management actions can include voluntary events such as discretionary contributions to employee benefit plans or nonrecurring specific events such as a plant closure that are considered special for EBIT-adjusted purposes.

Core adjusted automotive free cash flow Core adjusted automotive free cash flow is used by management and can be used by investors to review the liquidity of our automotive operations and to measure and monitor our performance against our capital allocation program and evaluate our automotive liquidity against the substantial cash requirements of our automotive operations. Core adjusted automotive free cash flow begins with adjusted automotive free cash flow from continuing operations and excludes the free cash flows of our autonomous vehicle operations, including Cruise, Maven and our investment in Lyft.

Vehicle Sales

GM presents both wholesale and retail vehicle sales data to assist in the analysis of our revenue and our market share. GM does not currently export vehicles to Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria. Accordingly these countries are excluded from industry sales data and corresponding calculation of GM's market share.

Wholesale vehicle sales data, which represents sales directly to dealers and others, including sales to fleet customers, is the measure that correlates to GM's revenue from the sale of vehicles, which is the largest component of Automotive net sales and revenue. Wholesale vehicle sales exclude vehicles sold by joint ventures. In the three months ended March 31, 2018, 34.9% of our wholesale vehicle sales volume was generated outside the U.S. The following table summarizes total wholesale vehicle sales of new vehicles by automotive segment (vehicles in thousands):

Retail vehicle sales data, which represents sales to end customers based upon the good faith estimates of management, including sales to fleet customers, does not correlate directly to the revenue GM recognizes during the period. However retail vehicle sales data is indicative of the underlying demand for GM vehicles. Market share information is based primarily on retail vehicle sales volume. In countries where retail vehicle sales data is not readily available, other data sources such as wholesale or forecast volumes are used to estimate retail vehicle sales to end customers.

Retail vehicle sales data includes all sales by joint ventures on a total vehicle basis, not based on the percentage of ownership in the joint venture. Certain joint venture agreements in China allow for the contractual right to report vehicle sales of non-GM trademarked vehicles by those joint ventures. Retail vehicle sales data includes vehicles used by dealers under courtesy transportation programs and vehicles sold through the dealer registration channel. This sales channel consists primarily of dealer demonstrator, loaner and self-registered vehicles which are not eligible to be sold as new vehicles after being registered by dealers. Certain fleet sales that are accounted for as operating leases are included in retail vehicle sales at the time of delivery to daily rental car companies. The following table summarizes total industry retail sales, or estimated sales where retail sales volume is not available by geographic region (vehicles in thousands):
