With a little bit of delay I can now share with you Light Commercial Vehicles June sales data for China. This segment is up a healthy 4% year-on-year this month to 400,713 registrations, which would make it the third biggest market in the world behind only China and the US if this was a country… Year-to-date the total stands at 2,709,911 units, also up 4%.
