Of the chinese car market also suffered a severe setback in September. The deliveries of cars to customers fell compared to the same month last year by 17.3 percent to 1.61 million vehicles, as the industry association PCA (China Passenger Car Association) announced.
The association measures sales of cars, SUVs, minivans and smaller commercial vehicles. For a few months now, after the recovery from the corona pandemic, there has been a problem in the world’s most important car market because there is a lack of electronic chips in some Asian countries due to lockdowns, among other things. In the case of cars with alternative drives, sales tripled in September to 334,000 cars.
Most important single market for German manufacturers
China is by far the most important single market for the German car groups Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW. As the market leader in the country’s mass market, Volkswagen is particularly hard hit by the slump in production, but recently Daimler and BMW have also left their springs in the premium segment.
