June auto sales ac­cel­er­ate

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

China’s auto sales grew again in June after two months of de­cline, data from the China As­so­ci­a­tion of Au­to­mo­bile Man­u­fac­tur­ers showed. Some 2.2 mil­lion ve­hi­cles were sold last month, up 4.5 per­cent year-on-year, com­pared with a 0.1 per­cent de­cline in May and a 2.2 per­cent drop in April. Mean­while, 2.2 mil­lion ve­hi­cles were pro­duced in June, up 5.4 per­cent from the same pe­riod last year, ac­cord­ing to the CAAM. Pas­sen­ger car sales climbed 2.3 per­cent to 1.8 mil­lion ve­hi­cles last month, 2.2 per­cent­age points slower than the over­all growth. But both pro­duc­tion and sales in new en­ergy ve­hi­cles were par­tic­u­larly ro­bust, with 59,000 NEVs sold in June, up 33 per­cent year-on-year, while 65,000 NEVs were pro­duced, up 43.4 per­cent.
