Dongfeng Motor Group has reported vehicle sales up nearly 75% in August, reflecting strong industry sales in China last month.

The company, China’s third largest vehicle producer, saw sales jump 73% to 120,608. Passenger car sales also rose 73% to 88,357 units.

But the company actually lagged the overall market.

Earlier this month it was reported that there was a huge rise in passenger car sales in China in August.

Sales of 858,300 units were 90.18% up from the 451,300 sold a year earlier, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said.
