VW/Audi China really have things together and were able to enter while keeping high brand status.

I think VW will not be able to continue this trend of high sedan sales soon, they are slipping and i think local and honda,toyota cars will gain market

China sees sedan exports more than doubled
(Xinhua)
Updated: 2008-02-07 14:24


BEIJING - China's sedan exports more than doubled year-on-year to 188,600 units in 2007, according to figures from the General Administration of Customs.

The country's auto imports and exports reached 66.9 billion US dollars last year, with imports up 24.45 percent and exports up 45.31 percent.

Chery, the flag-bearer of Chinese indigenous brands, saw a 132 percent surge of export in 2007, which came at 119,800 units. The carmaker, which has accelerated its expansion overseas in recent years, expected to export 180,000 this year.

Changan Automotive Group, China's fourth largest automaker, sold more than 40,000 cars overseas last year, against 21,700 in 2006.

The country's auto output grew 22.9 percent to 9.04 million units last year, according to figures with the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the country's top economic planner.

The NDRC deputy economic performance department director Zhu Hongren said, since quantity was not a problem anymore, auto producers should increase their focus on quality.

Compared with their international counterparts, China's auto makers are still small in terms of production scale and behind in technology. In addition, the country's auto boom has created growing problems, such as increasing traffic jams and pollution.

China imported 314,200 vehicles in 2007, an increase of 41.4 percent, with imports of sedans up 25.13 percent, cross-country vehicles up 64.91 percent and minibuses down 5.29 percent.

China sold 530,700 passenger vehicles in January, up 35.9 percent Y/Y:
February 14, 2008 - China sold a record amount of 530,700 passenger vehicles in the first month of this year, which represents a growth of 3.5 percent month-on-month and a 35.9 percent growth year-on-year, according to latest statistics from National Association of Passenger Vehicles Manufacturers.

Heavy snowstorms in January disrupted vehicle production in many regions in southern China. It must be a surprise to many people that China’s vehicle sales in January surged 35.9 percent from one year earlier.

"One the one hand, many carmakers did not transfer their stockpiles to dealers in the last month of last year and consequently dealers are under no pressure to sell their inventory this January,” explained Rao Da, secretariat of National Association of Passenger Vehicle Manufacturers.

"On the other hand, some car makers have understated their sales figures last year in order to make it look better this year,” Rao said.

Official statistics show FAW-VW leads China’s passenger vehicle sales in January by selling out 65,700 vehicles and it is followed by Shanghai-VW’s 45,000 in January. Industry insiders say FAW-VW has understated its sales numbers last year in order to hit a record target 600,000 this year.

Rao believes China’s car sales will not cease to grow until China puts oil consumption tax in place. For the time being, China has no restrictions on the imports of luxury and large displacement passenger vehicles.

China's top ten passenger vehicle makers in January 2008:
Shanghai. February 14 (Gasgoo.com) – Shanghai VW leads passenger car sales in January in China with 46,133 units sold, a figure that is just 16 units higher than its closest follower FAW VW, which sold 46,117 vehicles.

In the same month, Shanghai GM, FAW-VW, Shanghai VW all sold more than 400,000 vehicles, while FAW-Toyota, Dongfeng Nissan and Beijing Hyundai sold more than 30,000 vehicles; the other top ten automakers, including Changan Ford, Geely Auto, Guangzhou Honda and Chery Auto sold 200,000 – 240,000 vehicles.

Can someone tell us about the New Dadi SUV of Chengdu shown in these February numbers?

This is a model that CAAM tells us is outselling the coveted Chery Tiggo, but I don't think it can be found anywhere on this forum.

I have attached a couple of photos of models that were once sold by New Dadi (Xindadi 新大地). But I find it hard to believe that these are related to these CAAM chart numbers. :confused:

Thanks for your help.

Auto production, sales grow a bit slower in 2007
(Xinhua)
Updated: 2008-03-15 14:44


Auto production and sales remained stable in China last year, yet with growth a bit slower on lukewarm demand for vehicles of low engine displacement, sources with the Ministry of Commerce said on Saturday.

In 2007, China produced 8.88 million motor vehicles and sold 8.79 million, a growth of 22.02 percent and 21.84 percent, respectively, over the previous year.

Last year saw passenger vehicle sales went up 21.86 percent to 6.3 million units nationwide.

The total included 4.73 million cars, representing a year-on-year growth of 23.46 percent and accounting for 53.76 percent of the nation's total auto sales.

Of the car sales, those with an engine displacement of 1-2 liters each made up 3.92 million units, or 82.89 percent.

Meanwhile, 2.49 million commercial vehicles sold nationwide, up 22.25 percent. The growth rate was 8.02 percentage points higher.

Sales of Chinese vehicles in Russia grew 150% in 2007.

March 28, 2008 - In 2007, over 50,000 Chinese vehicles were sold in the Russian market, up 150 percent over the previous year. Chery Auto is the best seller among all the Chinese brands, the Xinhua news agency said, citing a Russian newspaper on Wednesday.

In 2007, sales of Chinese vehicles grow fast in Russia thanks to the increase in their local production capacity, said industry analyst Mr. Romanov. "They may nudge all the conventional car models of AutoVAZ out of the market after they've captured the low-end market," he predicts, adding that Chinese automakers will gain more market shares. AutoVAZ is Russia's leading domestic automaker.

Chery sold approximately 37,000 vehicles last year, an increase of 245 percent year on year. The home-grown automaker began selling cars in Russia in June 2006, and now Russia has been its largest overseas market, accounting for about 30 percent of its total overseas sales last year.

Recent foreign reports said that Chery is planning to buy an existing manufacturing plant in Russia by spending RMB 3 billion ($422.32 million), but the plan has not been officially confirmed.

Another Chinese automaker, Chongqing Lifan Group is also planning its production expansion in Russia. The automaker started its local assembly line in the Karachay-Cherkessia last summer and aims to raise its annual productivity to 50,000 units from the current level of 5,000 units.
