Vehicle sales in China fell 13 percent from a year earlier to 2.66 million in December 2018, following a 13.9 percent drop in the previous month, which was the biggest decline since a 26.4 percent slump in January 2012. It was also the sixth consecutive annual decrease in vehicle sales in the world's largest auto market partly due to persistent trade tensions with the US. Still, new energy vehicle sales climbed 38.2 percent. Considering 2018 full year, vehicle sales were down 2.8 percent to 28.0 million, while new energy vehicle sales jumped 61.7 percent. For 2019, China's industry association expects sales at 28.1 million. Total Vehicle Sales in China averaged 1051467.02 from 1997 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 3060271 in December of 2017 and a record low of 88416 in January of 1998.
