Very strong sales figures this month in China, with each of the Top 3 cars delivering yearly bests. The VW Lavida is #1 for the second month in a row at 25,072 sales and 227,087 year-to-date (#2). The FAW Xiali N3/N5 continues its impressive progression and gains one more spot to finish #2 with 24,253 sales (#6 YTD).
The Chevrolet Cruze is this month’s best performer, for the first time in the Chinese Top 3 with best-ever 23,843 sales – first month above 20,000 units in China. The Cruze is 7th year-to-date with 171,717 registrations.
The BYD F3 seems to have stabilised around the 6th place, a far cry from its early 2010 performance. It however remains #1 YTD (237,354 sales) and should keep the Lavida at bay for the year-end results. Further down the ranking, the VW Bora, Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus, Chevrolet Sail, Honda City and VW Polo all deliver their best 2010 month.
