Thanks to our partnership with Chinese consultancy outlet Cedars, we can share with you today July LCV data for China. This month the overall LCV market is down a harsh 18% year-on-year to 87.700 units, leading to a year-to-date tally down 5% to 902.922 sales. Pickup trucks continue to rally back with a 9% gain in July to 28.228 units and a 13% surge year-to-date to 221.123 units. The oddity this month is the freefalling of Mini Trucks (aka Mini Pickups) down 22% to 43.060 but still up 8% year-to-date to 366.230. Meanwhile minivans continue to fall into oblivion at -33% to 25.713 units and -23% to 315.569 registrations year-to-date.

The Wuling Mini Truck and Hongguang V remain the most popular LCVs in China this month despite drops of -25% and 27% respectively. The Great Wall Wingle 5 (+7%) shoots up to third place overall ahead of the Dongfeng K-Series Mini Truck (+42%) while the Jinbei Mini Truck (+121%) reappears in the ranking after over a year of non-reporting by Brilliance. The victims of the month are the Chana Star Mini Truck (-47%) dropping from #3 in June to #89, the Chana Star Minibus (-63%) dropping from #4 to #16 and the Wuling Sunshine (-72%) dropping from #5 to #15. Great performers include the Dongfeng C-Series Minivan (+72%), Huanghai N2-Series Pickup (+40%) and Jiangxi Isuzu Ruimai (+156%). Launched last month, the China-made Nissan Navara gains three spots in the Pickup ranking to hit #7 and climbs to #18 overall.
