As part of a partnership with local Consulting firm Cedars, we can share with you a lot more detail on the light commercial vehicle market in China with complete minivan, pickup and mini truck data by model available for the third consecutive month on BSCB. According to LMC Automotive, the overall LCV market in China is finally up 3% year-on-year to 319.498 registrations, adding up to 3.307.755 units after 11 months in 2015, down 9% over the same period in 2014. For once, minivans are stable at 76.751 sales but down 23% year-to-date to 915.536, Mini trucks (the Chinese label for micro pickups) are back to their previous lustre at +17% to 42.243 sales and +2% to 402.282 year-to-date and pickup trucks are struggling again at -11% to 28.513 sales and -17% year-to-date to 295.513. The remaining volume is held by light trucks.

The detail by model shows the Wuling Mini Truck holding firmly onto the pole position for the 5th consecutive month with sales up a whopping 30% on November 2014 to 25.152. Its year-to-date total now adds up to 217.849 vs. 221.579 for the Foton Light Truck. Given the Wuling had a larger advantage in November (6.726) than its deficit year-to-date (3.730), it is reasonable to expect it to edge into the annual lead when December figures are released.

In fact Wuling delivers its best year-on-year performance so far with the Sunshine also uncharacteristically up 35% to #3 and the Hongguang V posting its highest monthly volume since last May at 16.684 and #4 vs. just 7.684 and #12 last month. Only the Rongguang crumbles at -39%. Notice also solid performances by the Chana Taurus (+88%), FAW Jilin V52 (+88% also), JMC Qi Ling (+81%) and Sichuan South Chun Mini Truck (+92%). The Jiangxi Isuzu Ruimai, launched last month, improves by 71% to 851 sales at #37.
