China's Auto Market Guide provides a comprehensive picture of the Chinese automotive industry focusing on passenger cars and "pure" Chinese automakers having individual brands; and thus it can be regarded as a unique information source for those who want to start buying cars from China.

Now you don't need to look through numerous newsletters, statistical books, catalogues and market reports. Using this guide you will find research and statistics, market overviews and outlooks, industry analysis, car manufacturer profiles, quality ratings, consumer satisfaction reviews, expert's evaluations as well as a full and detailed catalogue of cars in one book.

China's Auto Market Guide will provide you with the most up-to-date and detailed information about the automotive industry of the fastest growing market in the world, China. China's automotive industry and vehicles market is now entering the stablization stage.
