April 2017 – January 2018 monthly All-models data also available, Contact us here
This is a new, exclusive, monthly update on BSCB. Up until now the traditional monthly sales figures published on this site for China were wholesales. Although they usefully track the success of locally-produced nameplates, wholesales can be subject to abrupt changes to reflect actual demand in dealerships, one example being the “disappearance” of the Baojun 560 from the rankings for the past couple of months. We now have access to monthly retail sales data so you can track the success of all China-made nameplates “in real time.” This month is dedicated to the outlining the models list differences between Wholesales and Retail Data, we will initiate proper commentary with March 2018 data.
Monthly data going back to April 2017 is also available on demand. The arrival of Chinese Retail Data on BSCB is part of our continued effort to give you the most detailed coverage of the largest car market in the world, and on top of exclusive figures we also have access to sales splits that are unavailable for wholesales. As a result, no less than 602 nameplates are covered in 2018 vs. just 415 for the wholesales data and 715 over the last 9 months of 2017 vs. 595 wholesales.
As such, exclusive retail sales figures are now available for the Wuling Hongguang S3 crossover (#21 in February and year-to-date), the Baojun 310W (#24 and #30), Haval H6 Coupe (#65 and #94), Haval H2s (#117 and #138) and variant detail for the Dongfeng Fengxing Joyear X3, X5, X6 and XV as far as nameplates inside the Top 200 are concerned, all the while the Baojun 560 returns at #73.
Most interestingly perhaps, we can finally share with you Landwind model splits, a carmaker that until now only shared brand wholesales data, revealing the X7 as the brand’s best-seller at #248 in February ahead of the X2 (#318) and X5 (#351) while the all-new Landwind Happy ranks at #387 and the X8 at #447. The Hongqi H7 finally benefits from uninterrupted sales reporting, while the entire Chana Raesor lineup is also a retail novelty, with the S50, S50T, M70, M80 and M90 now in the ranking.
The JAC Refine MPV lineup is now detailed into the R3, M3, M4, M5 and M6 variants while the JAC Refine S2 mini is separate from the S2 and he Haima S5 Young separate from the S5. The Dongfgeng Fengxing S500, F600 and Fengdu MX5 are now accounted for, as the BAIC Huansu H6, Chana Oushang X70A, Changhe A6, Changan Eado DT, Dongfeng Yufeng and Yufgeng S16, Foday Landfort, Foton Gratour im6, im8 and View, Hawtai Santa Fe 7, Jinbei S35, JMC Teshun and Zotye T500.
The Retail ranking also includes some microvans and mini pickups that are also covered in the China LCV updates, such as the Wuling Hongguang V, Rongguang and Sunshine, Chana Star 2, 3, 7 and 9 and the Dongfeng Xiaokang K01 and C31. Among foreign nameplates, we now have access to regular sales for the Hyundai Reina and Celesta and the Chevrolet Malibu XL split (new generation). As far as new brands are concerned, Retail data includes the Sinogold GM3 (#478) and YGM E-Series (#524). I have made a point to illustrate this article as extensively as possible so you can catch up on all nameplates that weren’t included in our wholesale updates.
