Best Selling Cars Models in China. The top 100 of the 2019

Best Selling Car in China

Best Selling Cars Models in China in 2019 were under the leadership of the Volkswagen Lavida, which however, is still falling in double-digits. The Nissan Sylphy holds the second place while the Buick Excelle GT scores an outstanding performance.


In the 2018 the Chinese vehicles market has progressively lost steam, following the deceleration of the domestic consumer demand. Indeed, after a positive start, the market has performed negatively during the second half of the year, ending with sales down 3.7%. The market has interrupted the positive trend of recent years losing for the first time since ’90s and closing the 2018 with 27.5 million units sold.

The 2019 kept declining in January – the 7th month in a row – signing the third consecutive double-digit drop, with sales at 2.332.165 (-16.3%). February were down again signing -17.6% and 1.421.311 units.

In March, the market dropped down in double-digit (-13.7%) with 2.309.609 units, leading to year-to-date registrations at 6.082.005 (-15.4%).

The market shows no improvements (-15.6%) in April, with 1.855.118 units, and in May with 1.683.264 sales (-24.9%). In June, sales kept the same tone, losing 19% – with 1.795.655 units – leading year-to-date figures at 11.420.982 (-17.5%).


Market Outlook

After the recent years’ decline, the Chinese market is expected to recover over the 2019-2025 period of time. Indeed, on the economic front, fiscal and monetary easing are expected to cushion the economy against any sharp slowdown, while a further deterioration in relations between China and the U.S. is the main downside risk.
