Best-selling New Cars in February 2015

Passenger car sales in the second month of the year grew 6.42% on year to 1,396,700 units, according to CAAM (China Association of Automobile Manufacturers). Compared with January 2015, deliveries plunged 31.47%, as the long holiday of Spring Festival significantly cut the number of business days in February. In the first two months, the passenger car market (sedans, MPVs, SUVs, microvans) expanded 8.72% on year to reach 3,434,700 units.

In February sales of sedans dropped 2.63% on year to 809,000, MPVs up 18.2% to 157,605, SUVs up 39.42% to 330,700.
