Light Commercial Vehicle sales in China are shy again this month at -10% and 420,989 registrations, bringing the year-to-date total to 4,511,311 units, down 7%. Both Wuling models in the Top 5 totally ignore this trend and are up a huge 40% year-on-year. The Wuling Sunshine sells 65,522 units in November, making its year-to-date total 670,897 sales, now down just 5%.
As usual let’s compare these figures with the highest-selling vehicles in America and Europe. In November the Ford F-Series sold 54,543 units in the USA+Canada for a 605,012 units 2011 year-to-date total. On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, the VW Golf sold 37,059 units in the whole of Europe, and 449,882 year-to-date. It is an amazing achievement for the little-known Wuling Sunshine to beat all these scores.
In 2nd place this month the Wuling Rongguang/Xingwang is at 34,273 sales and climbs up to 2nd place in 2011 with 350,919 units, up 38% and just above the Foton Forland at 350,570 sales.
