China Auto Info Thread & Auto Sales

2016:
In 2016 about 30 million new cars are sold in China. The #2 auto market USA sold about 16 million new cars.

2015:
China retained status as the world’s No. 1 auto market in 2015, selling 24.6 million units compared to 17.2 million vehicles sold in the U.S.

China’s car sales in 2015 reached a new high but growth slowed and demand in the world’s largest auto market is expected to cool further this year.

Vehicle makers sold 21.1 million passenger cars—sedans, sport-utility vehicles and minivans—last year, up 7.3% from a year earlier, government-backed China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said on Tuesday. The growth compares a 10% rise in 2014 and a 16% gain in 2013.
