General Motors has lost £4 billion in the frst quarter of 2009.
Revenue across the group fell by by almost half to £14.9bn as sales dropped in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America reports Sky News.
The overall loss was almost double the £2.2bn shortfall for the same period last year.
So far the company has taken more than £10bn in emergency loans from the US Treasury.
The first quarter also marked GM's failure to win new federal backing for a turnaround plan.
