The Chinese market grows by 25% in October, and 35% year-to-date: the 10 months 2010 figure (14.67 million) is already well superior to the full year 2009 number (13.64 million)!
The models ranking is very volatile and the VW Lavida, built exclusively for China on a Golf IV platform, takes the lead for the second time this year with 23,180 sales. It is #2 year-to-date with 202,015 registrations. The Buick Excelle drops one spot to #2 and the FAW Xiali N Series comes back into the Top 3 for the first time since January, mainly thanks to the success of the new N5 (pictured below).
The BYD F3, still #1 year-to-date (217,103 sales), has its best month since May at 18,715 sales (#6), whereas the Chevrolet Sail (a 2010 restyled Chinese version of the Opel Corsa) storms into the Top 10 in 9th with 16,396 sales, its best figure ever, by far.
