Light-vehicle sales rose 2.3% in June behind sedans
Automotive News China | 2018/7/13

Sales of new light vehicles in China increased 2.3 percent to roughly 1,874,200 in June, reflecting robust sedan demand.

Sedan deliveries advanced 9.1 percent from a year earlier to around 963,400 last month, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said.

Minibus sales edged up 0.5 percent to approximately 43,900. 

By contrast, demand for crossovers and SUVs slid 0.5 percent to about 737,600. It was the first time the segment posted a monthly sales decline in several years. 

Multi-purpose vehicle deliveries remained weak, slumping 21 percent to 129,300 in June. 

In the first half of the year, Chinas new light-vehicle sales rose 4.6 percent to nearly 11.8 million behind strong deliveries in April and May. 

In June, sales of commercial vehicles including buses and trucks jumped 18 percent from a year earlier to roughly 399,000, reflecting robust demand from shippers and domestic logistics providers. Through June, commercial vehicle deliveries increased 4.8 percent to nearly 2.3 million.

As a result, total automobile deliveries in China rose 4.8 percent to around 2,273,000 last month. Year-to-date auto sales approached 14.1 million, increasing 5.6 percent from the same period last year.
