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. LCVs are struggling once again this month in China with the Sunshine down a horrendous 32% on May 2013 to just 33,643 sales but this enables it to get back onto the podium, up from #6 overall last month. For its part the Wuling Rongguang is down 4% to #5 but the Chana Minibus is up a beautiful 18% to #7 thanks to the new gen. Notice the Wuling Mini Truck up 3 spots on April to #24, the Dongfeng Minibus up 9 to #30 and the Beijing Auto Minibus pointing its bonnet at #46 with 10,726 sales.
