China vehicle production and sales increase 9.6% and 12.6% respectively in November
On December 11, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) announced vehicle production and sales results for the month of November, 2020.
Sales continued to realize a double-digit year-over-year (y/y) increase in the month. Year-to-date (YTD) decrease rate for sales from January to November has contracted to less than 3%. The passenger vehicle sector maintained an upward trend in sales and made a greater contribution to the sales increases in the entire automotive market. Among passenger vehicles, sales of SUVs and minivans continued to achieve rapid increases. The commercial vehicle sector continued to reflect substantial growth in sales due to the strong performance of trucks. Sales of new energy vehicles (NEV) also achieved a high increase rate in the month.
With regard to the future trend of growth in the automotive industry, CAAM expects that market demand will continue to recover, as the Chinese economy presents a continuously upward trend and local governments have issued policies to stimulate consumption nationwide. However, the global spread of COVID-19 exerts a second impact upon European and American countries, which further slows down the recovery of the world economy and indirectly influences economic growth in China. Meanwhile, recent short supply of semiconductor chips will have some impact upon automobile production in the short term.
Overall vehicle production in November totaled 2.847 million units, reflecting a 9.6% y/y increase, while sales totaled 2.77 million units, reflecting a 12.6% y/y increase. YTD production for January through November totaled 22.372 million units with a 3.0% decline compared to the same period in the previous year, while sales YTD were 22.47 million units, reflecting a 2.9% y/y decline.
November passenger vehicle production reached 2.329 million units, reflecting an increase of 7.5% compared to November of last year. Sales of passenger vehicles totaled 2.297 million units, reflecting an 11.6% y/y increase.
Among commercial vehicles, production in November totaled 518,000 units, reflecting a 20.3% y/y increase. Commercial vehicle sales were 472,000 units, reflecting an 18.0% y/y increase.
NEV production reached 198,000 units, reflecting an increase of 75.1% y/y, while sales reached 200,000 units, reflecting an increase of 104.9% y/y. Among NEVs, BEV (battery electric vehicle) production was 164,000 units, reflecting a 66.2% y/y increase, while sales were 167,000 units, reflecting a 100.5% y/y increase. PHV (plug-in hybrid vehicle) production and sales were both 33,000 units, reflecting a y/y increase of 136.4% and 128.9% respectively. FCV (fuel cell vehicle) production was 288 units, reflecting a y/y increase of 7.2 times, while sales were 290 units, reflecting a y/y increase of 28 times.
Overall vehicle exports in November totaled 122,000 units, reflecting a 46.7% y/y increase. Passenger vehicle exports totaled 96,000 units, reflecting a 58.6% y/y increase. Commercial vehicle exports totaled 26,000 units, reflecting a 15.1% y/y increase.

China vehicle production and sales increase 14.1% and 12.8% respectively in September
On October 13, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) announced vehicle production and sales results for the month of September, 2020. Production and sales both realized a double-digit year-over-year (y/y) increase in the month. Year-to-date (YTD) decrease rates for production and sales from January to September have contracted to less than 7%. The commercial vehicle sector continued to achieve robust growth in sales due to the strong performance of trucks and buses, while the passenger vehicle sector maintained an upward trend in sales with a higher increase rate. In September, passenger vehicles played a stronger role than commercial vehicles in terms of their contribution to the sales increases in the entire automotive market. Monthly SUV sales reached a record level. Production and sales of new energy vehicles (NEV) also continued to increase in the month and reached a historical high in terms of September results.  
With regard to the future trend of development in the automotive industry, CAAM expects that the commercial vehicle sector will maintain an upward momentum with the support of incentive policies and investments. The passenger vehicle sector will also benefit from a series of positive factors, including the new vehicles launched at the Auto China 2020 opened in late September and the continuing implementation of policies to promote consumption by local governments in China.

China vehicle production and sales increase 6.3% and 11.6% respectively in August
On September 10, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) announced vehicle production and sales results for the month of August, 2020. Sales continued to realize a double-digit year-over-year (y/y) increase in the month. Decrease rates for both production and sales contracted to less than 10%. The commercial vehicle sector achieved substantial growth in sales due to the strong performance of trucks, while the passenger vehicle sector maintained an upward trend in sales. Production and sales of new energy vehicles (NEV) also continued to increase in the month and reached a historical high in terms of August results.  
With regard to the future trend of development in the automotive industry, CAAM expects that the commercial vehicle sector will maintain an upward momentum with the support of incentive policies and investments. CAAM also mentioned that consumers will strengthen their confidence in passenger vehicle consumption due to several factors, including the policies introduced by government departments to stimulate consumption and promote NEV application in rural areas. As automakers are planning the launch of new models at the Auto China 2020, which will commence in late September, and the demand for road trips will rise during the coming Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day vacation, CAAM believes that an additional boost in consumption will occur in the automotive industry in China.
Overall vehicle production in August totaled 2.119 million units, reflecting a 6.3% y/y increase, while sales totaled 2.186 million units, reflecting an 11.6% y/y increase. YTD (year-to-date) production for January through August totaled 14.432 million units with a 9.6% decline compared to the same period in the previous year, while sales YTD were 14.551 million units, reflecting a 9.7% y/y decline.
August passenger car production reached 1.694 million units, reflecting a decrease of 0.1% compared to August of last year. Sales of passenger vehicles totaled 1.755 million units, reflecting a 6.0% y/y increase.
Among commercial vehicles, production in August totaled 425,000 units, reflecting a 42.8% y/y increase. Commercial vehicle sales were 431,000 units, reflecting a 41.6% y/y increase.
NEV production reached 106,000 units, reflecting an increase of 17.7% y/y, while sales reached 109,000 units, reflecting an increase of 25.8% y/y. The new energy vehicle market expanded steadily due to the promotion of NEV application in rural areas as well as the support of local governments for NEV consumption. Among NEVs, BEV (battery electric vehicle) production was 82,000 units, reflecting a 7.6% y/y increase, while sales were 88,000 units, reflecting a 25.6% y/y increase. PHV (plug-in hybrid vehicle) production was 24,000 units, reflecting a 73.0% y/y increase, while sales were 21,000 units, reflecting a 26.1% y/y increase.

On March 12, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) announced vehicle production and sales results for the month of February, 2020.

Low production levels was a result of automakers’ postponed work resumption and supply shortage of automotive parts. Sales were affected by weak consumption performance as market demands were largely restrained. February production and sales will have a significant impact on the performance of the automotive market in the first half of 2020.
Overall vehicle production in February totaled 285,000 units, reflecting a 79.8% year-over-year (y/y) decrease, while sales totaled 310,000 units, reflecting a 79.1% y/y decline.

China vehicle production and sales decline 25.4% and 18.7% in January
On February 26, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) announced vehicle production and sales results for the month of January, 2020.
Overall vehicle production in January totaled 1.767 million units, reflecting a 25.4% year-over-year (y/y) decline, while sales totaled 1.927 million units, reflecting an 18.7% y/y decline. 
January passenger car production reached 1.436 million units, reflecting a decline of 28.1% compared to January of last year. Sales of passenger vehicles totaled 1.607 million units, reflecting a 20.6% y/y decline. Production and sales of the four major passenger vehicle segments (sedan, MPV, SUV and minivan) reflected obvious month-over-month (m/m) and y/y declines.
Among commercial vehicles, production in January totaled 331,000 units, reflecting a 10.5% y/y decline. Commercial vehicle sales were 320,000 units, reflecting a 7.5% y/y decline. As two major commercial vehicle segments, production and sales of trucks and buses both reflected dramatic m/m and y/y declines, with the decrease rates of buses being even higher.
According to CAAM’s analysis, the m/m and y/y declines of vehicle production and sales in January can be attributed to the partial release of consumption demands in December 2019 and the fact that January has fewer workdays than in previous years as the month includes the Spring Festival vacation. Impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak on the automotive market will become more apparent after February, which is expected to reflect higher decline rates in vehicle production and sales than in January.
