The recovery in China's auto sector is continuing this month with output in the first ten days up 11.2% year-on-year, according to industry data.

A Xinhua news agency report says that the combined production of 11 major auto producers totalled 473,000 units, up 11.2% year-on-year, according to a report released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM).

However, the report also noted the figure marked a 24% decline compared with that in the first 10-day period of July (when output surged).

The Xinhua report said that output of passenger cars rose 6.8% year-on-year to reach 415,000 units in early August, while that of commercial vehicles surged 58.1% year-on-year to 58,000 units.

China's new vehicle market continued to recover in July 2020, with sales rising by 16.4% to 2.11m units from 1.81m units in the same month of last year, based on passenger car and commercial vehicle wholesale data released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM).
