Shanghai (Gasgoo)- GAC Group's auto sales stood at 165,622 units in May, rising 4.07% compared with the same period last year, said the automaker. Although the growth in year-to-date sales still remained negative, it was 6.2 percentage points fewer than the drop in Jan.-Apr. one.

GAC Group's upturn in May sales should be mainly attributable to the blooming growth offered by GAC Toyota. The Sino-Japanese joint venture saw its wholesales leap 33.4% year over year to 67,500 units, which made the decline in its year-to-date sales narrowed to only 0.79%.
GAC Toyota announced its retail sales in May surged 32.1% from the previous year to 68,518 units. There were 48,532 consumers taking delivery of the TNGA-based models, representing a significant growth of 122% from the prior-year period, which included 15,513 Camry cars, 20,629 Levin cars (+81%) and 7,588 Wildlander SUVs, the sibling of the Toyota RAV4 that just hit the market in late February.
