China July 2018: Deepening SUV crisis pulls entire market down 5.3%

Geely posts a 28th consecutive month of double-digit gains thanks to a strong sedan lineup.

According to data released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), in July the Chinese new light vehicle market endures its second month of decline in 2018 after February when the Chinese New Year Holiday disrupted sales. Wholesales drop 5.3% to 1.589.500 units, yet the year-to-date volume remains strong at +3.4% to 13.364.500. Last month’s big story, the sudden decline of SUV wholesales after 9 consecutive years of monthly gains, gets a lot worse in July: after dropping just 0.5% in June, SUV wholesales dip a very worrying 8.2% to 632.700 units. Sedans are down also, but by just 1.3% to 814.600 with MPVs diving 22% to 106.600 and microvans getting a small respite at +30% to 35.600. It’s hard to emphasise enough how unexpected, sudden and steep this SUV crisis is turning out to be, and it now has the potential to turn local carmakers’ strategies and fortunes upside down as most had completely focused their energy on launching as many SUVs as possible, totally neglecting the sedan segment. With the notable exception of Geely, which made sure to strengthen its sedan game over the past few years, this SUV crisis will indeed paradoxically benefit foreign carmakers that had been a lot slower to launch their own SUV lineups and can now fall back on strong existing sedan ranges.

The new 6 sedan helps lift MG deliveries up 119% in July.

In the China-made brands ranking, once again the Top 3 best-sellers are in frank positive territory thanks to strong sedan sales: Volkswagen is up 9% to 234.000, Toyota up 13% and two spots on June to #2 and 118.000 and Geely up 18% to remain at #3 with 108.000 deliveries. That’s almost double any other Chinese brand (the #2 Baojun is down 9% to 57.000) and amounts to Geely’s 28th consecutive month of double-digit year-on-year gains and its 11th month in a row above 100.000 monthly sales. All other Top 10 brands are in negative bar Chevrolet (+17%) here too thanks to a strong sedan sales (Sail and Cavalier, see further down). Buick (-19%), Changan (-16%), Audi (-13%), Honda (-10%), Baojun (-9%) and Nissan (-7%) all fall faster than the market.

The arrival of the 02 (pictured) means Lynk & Co posts its first five-digit sales month ever.

Strong gainers further down include Qoros (+659%), MG (+119%), Hawtai (+76%), JAC (+39%), Brilliance (+34%), Mitsubishi (+34%), BYD (+30%), BMW (+25%), Chery (+23%), Hanteng (+20%), Cadillac (+19%) and Roewe (+13%) whereas Ford (-49%) continues to implode, Hyundai (-40%) is surprisingly back in hell, Dongfeng (-35%) is in great difficulty and Haval (-31%) marks a very worrying 16th consecutive month of year-on-year decline and a very clear worsening of its performance after losing 11% in April, 18% in May and 20% in June. There are more good news for the Geely Group and more bad news for Great Wall Motors: thanks to the arrival of the 02 crossover at over 3.000 units (see our upcoming Focus on the All-new models report), Lynk & Co lodges its very first five-digit month at a record 12.300 sales and #30, meaning it outpaces for the first time archenemy WEY, down a steep 32% on June and 67% on its monthly record to a meagre 7.080 units despite 3 models (VV5, VV7 and P8).

Kia Sportage sales are up a whopping 433% year-on-year thanks to the new model.

Model-wise, the VW Lavida enjoys a 4th consecutive pole position thanks to the new generation boosting wholesales up a smashing 34%, it distances the Toyota Corolla (+12%), Nissan Sylphy (+33%) and VW Jetta (+19%) meaning the Top 4 best-sellers are 100% sedans for the 2nd month running (it was the Top 5 last month), yet sedans break another record in July: they are 8 in the Top 10 with the great performances of the VW Passat (+152%) and Honda Civic (+23%), the Geely Emgrand beating a 5-year old ranking record at #9 (previous best #10 first hit in December 2012) and a disappointing show by the VW Sagitar (-12%) about to be renewed. The Haval H6 implodes 30% year-on-year but manages to hold onto the SUV lead by the skin of its teeth at #5 overall, with a meagre 487-unit advantage over the VW Tiguan (+21%) in excellent shape. Below the GAC Trumpchi GS4 (-26%) and Geely Boyue (-11%) in difficulty, the Wuling Hongguang (-45%) implodes to beat its worst ranking for the 2nd month running, falling from #7 in June to #12 this month. The culprit: the all-new Baojun 360, up 15% and 20 spots on last month to a new record 12.643 sales, also cannibalising the Baojun 730 (-74%)…

The Chery Tiggo 8 leaps up to #82 overall for its 2nd month of sale.

Fittingly, the majority of impressive gainers in the Top 50 are sedans, such as the VW Lamando (+119%), Toyota Camry (+107%) boosted by the new generation, Chevrolet Sail (+64%), BMW 5 Series L (+58%), Chevrolet Cavalier (+53%), Geely Emgrand GL (+50%), Honda Fit (+47%), Skoda Octavia (+35%) and VW Bora (+15%). A sprinkling of SUVs defy the overall gloom such as the Kia Sportage (+433%) lifted by a completely new model, Buick Envision (+29%) and Toyota RAV4 (+28%), but that’s it. More common among SUVs are ghastly falls such as the BYD Song (-68%), Haval H2 (-67%), Changan CS75 (-54%), the hero of 2017 the Baojun 510 (-49%), Honda UR-V (-47%), Nissan X-Trail (-45%), Dongfeng Fengguang 580 (-44%), GAC Trumpchi GS8 (-44%), Skoda Kodiaq (-44%), Toyota Prado (-44%), Audi Q3 (-43%), Honda XR-V (-37%), Jeep Compass (-37%), Ford Edge (-34%) and Honda CR-V (-33%).

The VW T-Roc has taken off: it breaks into the Chinese Top 100 for the first time in July.

The Baojun 530 remains the most popular recent launch at #23 (+3) even though it drops 7% on June, followed by the Baojun 360 at #30 (+20), Geely Vision X3 at #38 (+18), Lynk & Co 01 at #52 (+14) and a new record 9.260 sales, the GAC Trumpchi GS3 at #60 (+28) and a new all-time high 8.389 units, the Chery Tiggo 8 at #82 (+27) up 16% on its inaugural month to 6.051 deliveries, the VW T-Roc at #95 (+183) up 358% on June to 4.641 sales and the Skoda Kamiq at #100 (+83%) up 65% on last month to 4.335 units. In the good news aisle, let’s single out the BYD Qin (+864%), Qoros 5 SUV (+731%), BYD Tang (+622%), Hyundai ix35 (+483%), Changan CS55 (+257%), JAC Refine S5 (+209%) and MG ZS (+56%), all bar the Qoros and ZS due to new generations.

    1. Hi JP,
      Those are different numbers indeed, no idea where they got them as ours are official wholesales from CAAM and have been so for the past decade.
      All the best,
      Matt

  1. The top 5 volume equals that of 300 other models

    From # 187 till # 437, these models sell les than 2k units.
    That’s 250 models struggling for traction.

    From # 256 till # 437 less than 1k.
    That’s appr. 170 models ‘suffocating’

  2. SUV sales in crisis? Might be a freak event, prior to tarrif policies. June SUV’s almost flat, July -8,2% Too early to tell if this trend will continue. I would rather use the word ‘crisis’ for a dozen brands suffering from declining overall sales. Among them the French.

    1. Rick – SUV sales drop has nothing to do with tariff policies as the most affected vehicles are low-cost Chinese SUVs and their potential buyers wouldn’t be holding off their purchase waiting for the price of imports to lower – these are completely different people and targets.
      It is of course too early to call this a long term slump but first a SUV market share drop, then a 0.5% drop then a 8.2% drop after over 100 consecutive months of double-digit gains is indeed a deepening crisis as the title of the article describes and can’t qualify for a freak event anymore.
      (but I also agree about the French being in crisis, notably Renault due to the fact that its locally-produced lineup is 100% SUV)
      All the best,
      Matt

    1. Hi Pat,
      Ford’s misfortunes in China have more to do with an ageing lineup as the models described in this article aren’t affected by import tariffs as they are all produced in China.
      All the best,
      Matt

    1. Hi Todor,
      I separate them the same way the VW Magotan and Passat, VW Jetta and Santana, Honda XR-V and Vezel, Toyota IZOA and C-HR, Honda UR-V and Avancier, Honda Genia and Greiz, Toyota Yaris L sedan and Vios, Toyota Yaris L and Vios FS are separated. This is the way Chinese sales are displayed monthly and I respect that.
      All the best,
      Matt
