As an appetiser before we go into the February brands and models rankings in detail for China, CAAM announced today that February sales were up 18% year-on-year to 1.6 million units, a much larger improvement than the one registered in January (+6%). Sales were boosted by great performances from foreign manufacturers such as Ford (+67%) and Toyota (+43%). Reversely, Chinese carmakers saw their market share decline at home for the 6th consecutive month. The Chinese new light vehicle market is up 11% year-on-year so far in 2014 vs. a CAAM prediction of 8 to 10% in the Full Year. Source: www.boursorama.com, many thanks to my dear Dad for the tip.
