China Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) Industry Report, 2014
Chinese MPV market grew faster than the overall automobile market and the passenger car market. The MPV output soared 168.73% year on year to 1.32 million units and the MPV sales volume surged 164.53% YoY to 1.31 million units. From January to April of 2014, China’s MPV output and sales volume reached 651,000 units and 625,000 units separately, up 62.05% and 56.86% year on year respectively. In 2013-2014, Chinese MPV witnesses rapid growth, mainly because China Association of Automobile Manufacturers defines SAIC-GM-Wuling’s Wuling Hongguang as an MPV model instead of the previous cross-type passenger car model as well as low-cost MPV models are launched.
