China April Car Sales Growth Slows on Fuel Prices, Quake

China’s passenger-car sales slowed in April from the previous month as the government raised fuel prices and Japan’s record earthquake slowed deliveries.

Deliveries of cars including multipurpose and sport-utility vehicles to dealerships rose 2.8 percent from a year earlier to 1.14 million units, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said in a statement today. Sales climbed 6.5 percent in March.
