japanese car sales recover in china

Japanese automakers are a little less worried when they look westwards to China, as their sales appear to slowly recover from a severe drumming during the island crisis.

Honda’s May car sales in China are up 4.6% on the year, Nissan’s sales rose 2%, and Toyota reports a tiny 0.3% sales increase, says The Nikkei [sub].

Toyota executives say that a lack of new product in China is partially to blame for its laggardness.

    Mahindra went solo with the Logan, re-badged it as the Verito and made some changes. The Logan started to sell better under the Mahindra umbrella. gaspoweredrccars-sale.com
