Thanks to LMC Automotive I can now share with you more detail about the Chinese car market, including the Top 10 best-selling Light Commercial Vehicles which is a new monthly update on BSCB. Lucky you! Note LMC still considers the Wuling Hongguang as a LCV so we are actually dealing with the Top 9 best-sellers here. Interestingly, among the LCVs for which I have April 2013 data to compare with (the Top 5), only two gain ground year-on-year: the Hongguang (+92%) and the Chana Minibus (+13%) which includes the Star and Taurustar I spotted many, many times in my visit to China last month.
All others lose ground and for the Sunshine it’s a dramatic -36% to 6th overall with 29,575 sales. Further down, notice the JAC Light Truck at #15 with 23,240 sales, the Wuling Mini Truck at #27, Jinbei Mini Truck at #36, Dongfeng Minibus at #39 and the Great Wall Pick-up making its appearance at #41 and #10 LCV with 11,493 units, a large part of which should be the Great Wall Wingle.
