News Story
Passenger vehicle sales in China continued to surge in January, registering a 15 percent increase over the same month last year.

The increase came despite central government putting an end to tax incentives for buyers of small cars and subsidies for trade-ins, and launching a quota policy in Beijing to curb car purchases.

Total domestic sales of cars, sports-utility vehicles, multi-purpose vehicles and minivans increased by 15.3 percent to 1,402,764 units in January from a year earlier. However, the figure was 4.8 percent lower than that in December, said the China Passenger Car Association on Monday.

Meanwhile, the luxury-vehicle segment continued to lead the industry with robust sales growth. Following a record-breaking sales performance in 2010, Mercedes-Benz started 2011 with year-on-year sales growth of 89 percent for January, delivering nearly 15,330 units of Mercedes-Benz, Smart, AMG and Maybach on the Chinese mainland.

However, Rao Da, secretary-general of the association warned that the increasing inventory to dealers might lead to a decrease in sales over the coming months. He also said that the Spring Festival holiday and a possible petrol price hike might result in a 35 percent year-on-year negative sales growth this month, and could add more pressure to the inventory.

Rao even predicted a possible negative year-on-year sales growth in China's automobile industry, the first for two decades, because of excessive consumption during the past two years provoked partly by the government's incentive policies.

The China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, which will release sales figures for the entire industry on Friday, predicted that whole-year growth will slow to 10 to 15 percent, after domestic auto sales jumped 32.37 percent to 18.06 million vehicles in 2010, overtaking the United States for a second consecutive year.
