The June LCV rankings in China confirm once again a trend we described in detail in April: the move away from bargain basement microvans towards micro pickups and larger minivans. The perfect illustration of this trend towards micro pickups is the pole position of the Wuling Mini Truck this month with sales up an incredible 66% to 27.026 units in an LCV segment down 16% year-on-year to 305.247 registrations. Its minivan variant the Wuling Rongguang is for its part up 4% to 2nd place at 24.545 units while the Foton Light Truck, #1 in May and year-to-date, is up 41% on June 2014 to #3 and 18.753 deliveries. Sovereign a year ago, the cheap Wuling Sunshine (-40%) and Chana Minibus (-64%) implode. Meanwhile the Wuling Hongguang V is steadily losing steam after an explosive start: down 11% on May to 15.999 sales.
