BEIJING Jan 14 (Reuters) - General Motors Co and its China joint ventures sold 242,486 vehicles in the country in 2012, up 23.2 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. automaker said on Monday.

The pace of growth was faster than the 9.7 percent annual rise achieved in November, thanks in part to a 41.7 percent sales gain at its car venture with partner SAIC Motor Corp .

For the full year, sales were up 11.3 percent to 2.84 million units, the company said in a statement.

GM also makes vehicles in China in partnership with FAW Group.
