During the period from January to April 2014, the production and sales volume of basic passenger vehicles (cars) totaled 4.1042 million units and 4.1464 million units respectively, a year-on-year increase of 3.76% and 4.88% separately.

In terms of the levels of basic passenger vehicles, influenced by the adjusted vehicle purchase tax on passenger cars with 1.6L or lower displacement as well as the subsidies for energy-saving vehicles, A-class vehicle has seen a rising market share from 2009 on, from 50% in 2008 to 60%. It is projected that A-class vehicles will continue to take the lead in market share by 2014. However, in the overall passenger vehicle market, the Chinese consumers prefer mid-sized and large vehicles. Therefore, basic passenger vehicles would be squeezed by SUV market.
