Sales of passenger cars in China rose again

In April, car sales in China grew by 12,7% compared to 2013 year, according to China Daily. This is especially noticeable against the background of a decline in sales of 9,4% in February and 9% in March.

In the country, in April this year 1 511 095 vehicles were sold, mainly sports cars, minivans and universal cars.

Sales are also boosted by the fact that many cities are imposing restrictions on the number of cars in order to solve the problem of congestion, and often there is such a phenomenon as “panic acquisition,” says Rao Da, a spokesman for the China Passenger Car Association.

Nevertheless, sales are mainly growing due to foreign cars. China's own car brands are not in such demand. Thus, the American company General Motors Co. reported a 6,3% increase in its vehicle sales and a new record of 278 purchased vehicles in April. All of the company's brands - Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac and Wuling - have risen to new levels of sales.

Another American automaker, Ford Motor Co., called the figure 96 289 - so many cars were sold in April, and this is 29% more than a year ago. And the Japanese Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. Reported 118 500 sold cars and growth of 15% to the previous year.
