        According to the statistics of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), in April 2020, 2.102 million units of vehicles were produced and 2.07 million units were sold in China, respectively up 46.6% and 43.5% from this March and up 2.3% and 4.4% from the same period last year. This also shows the end of the consecutive drop in sales over the past 21 months.

       CAAM said, as the pandemic curve in China has been gradually flattened since this April and Chinese government has also announced some stimulus plans for boosting local car production and sales, the performance of Chinese automotive market in April was improved. However, due to the pandemic in other countries, China only exported around 70,000 units of vehicles this April , down 22.9% from this March and down 15.7% from the same period last year.  

        In the first 4 months of 2020, 5.596 million units of cars were produced and 5.761 million units of cars were sold in China, respectively down 33.4% and 31.1% from the same period last year. In terms of new energy vehicles , the production and sales in China were both roughly 0.205 million units, a significant drop of 44.8% and 43.4% from the same period last year. Beijing has also announced in March that it will extend the subsidies and tax exemption policies pertaining to new energy vehicles (EVs or plug-in Hybrids, for example) for 2 years, in order to deal with the recent low car sales result.
