Automobile production in China by month 2019-2020

In February 2020, China produced around 89,000 commercial vehicles and 195,000 passenger cars. This indicated a significant decrease in automobile production compared to the same period of the previous year.

Automobile production in China

In 2019, roughly 92 million automobiles had been produced worldwide. That year, China's production had accounted for about 28 percent of the global car production. In the passenger car market, China’s annual production had exceeded that of Japan, Germany, India, and South Korea combined. China was also the world's largest automobile sales market in 2019.

Foreign carmakers are required to form joint ventures with Chinese car manufacturers in order to build cars in China. This policy mainly aims at building the domestic automobile industry. However, Chinese brands have difficulties finding market acceptance in comparison with their international rivals. Among the ten leading passenger car manufacturers in China in 2018, majority were joint ventures. As China is one of the largest vehicle markets worldwide, with car sales amounting to 25.8 million vehicles in 2019, competition for a share of the market is huge among both local and foreign players.
