Japan Cars sale slow in China

 Japanese autos sale  in China retard  due to fall in robust growth in 2017.

Honda Motor said Tuesday that its Chinese sales dropped 13% in March, while Mazda Motor’s slid 1%.

Toyota Motor’s sales climbed 5.4% to 118,500 vehicles last month. Cumulative sales so far this year reached 321,900 units, up 8.7%.

Nissan Motor’s new-auto sales rose 2.4% on the year in March to 122,959 vehicles, the company said Wednesday. That is the slowest growth since December 2016. Sales of its Qashqai sport utility vehicle tumbled 11.2% to 12,209 units. The mainstay Sylphy sedan logged a 2.7% increase to 30,535 units. Smaller commercial vehicles, which had sold briskly for business use, edged down 0.8% to 20,143 units.

Nissan’s cumulative sales since January rose 6.9% on the year to 336,131 vehicles, but this marks a slowdown from 12% growth in 2017. Momentum stayed strong through January but weakened to a 4.4% increase in February.
