Geely Automobile Holdings said November vehicle sales volume rose 0.8% year on year.

Geely sold 44,520 vehicles last month, up 24.1% from October, it said in a filing with the Hong Kong stock exchange cited by Reuters.

For the first 11 months of 2011, Geely said it sold 373,630 vehicles, up 4%, or 77.8% of its full-year sales target of 480,000 units in 2011.

Car sales in China rose 0.29% in November, holding on to a mild rebound from a trough in May, as automarkers used year-end promotions to lure customers back to showrooms.
