In July, China's auto sales reached 1,808,000 units, sliding 4.3% compared with the year-ago period, versus the 9.6% decline in June sales.

However, compared with the auto sales number in June, the country still posted a double-digit decrease of 12.1% partly because the market entered the traditional off-season.

For the first seven months, year-to-date vehicle sales totaled 14,132,000 units, an evident decline of 11.4% over the prior-year.
