China Auto Sales Drop In April 2019
May 10, 2019; Automotive News China reported that Honda Motor Co.'s China sales jumped 24 percent year on year to 125,407 in April while Nissan Motor Co.'s local deliveries dropped 2.9 percent to 121,554.
Honda’s robust sales came as a result of sustained strong demand for the Accord, Civic, Crider and Fit cars and CR-V and XR-V crossovers. The six nameplates each generated sales of more than 10,000 last month, Honda’s China office said.
Dragging down Nissan deliveries in April was its car joint venture with Dongfeng Motor Group., which builds sedans and crossovers for the Nissan brand and its proprietary Venucia marque.
Last month, sales of Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Co. decreased 5.9 percent to 97,056, according to Honda’s China office.
