The CAAM said it was the first time for the CV sector to record a year-on-year growth in both monthly production and sales volumes since April last year.
However, the year-to-date CV output and sales still fell at a two-digit rate compared to the same span in 2021.
China's new energy vehicle (NEV) output and sales reached 691,000 and 666,000 units last month, both hitting a new high level. For the first eight months of the year, there were 3.97 million and 3.86 million NEVs produced and sold across China, up roughly 120% and 110% year over year.
