Vehicles sales in China fell 5.2 percent from a year earlier to 2.52 million units in March 2019, following a 13.8 percent decline in the previous month. It was the ninth consecutive annual decrease and the smallest in seven months, as car makers reduced prices to boost sales after Beijing handed out tax cuts to spur consumer spending. Sales of SUVs, sedans and minivans fell 6.9 percent to just over 2 million units while sales of new energy vehicles jumped 85.4 percent to 126 thousand units. Considering the first quarter of the year, vehicles sales dropped 3.6 percent over the same period of 2018, as sales of passenger cars were off 13.7 percent to 5.3 million units and sales of SUVs dropped 14.2 percent. Total Vehicle Sales in China averaged 1063621.40 from 1997 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 3060271 in December of 2017 and a record low of 88416 in January of 1998.
