China Auto Sales May Decline 10% This Year, Center Says

China’s auto sales may fall 10 percent this year with the end of government stimulus policies and restrictions on car licenses, according to the China Automotive Technology & Research Center.

Industrywide vehicle deliveries fell for the first time in 27 months in April, as the government raised fuel prices, cities implemented controls to curb traffic and Japan’s record earthquake slowed deliveries. Total auto sales declined 0.25 percent to 1.55 million units, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
