China January 2011: BYD F3 on top, Nissan Sunny launches Discover the Top 150 best selling models


Nissan Sunny

This month is the biggest month ever for Chinese car sales: 1.894 million vehicles changed hands including 1.529 million passenger cars, up 14% on an already record-breaking January ’10. This is also possibly the biggest single month ever in any country in the world. 47 models sold more than 10,000 units, the highest figure ever reached by any country on the planet.

Behind the BYD F3, #1 again with 29,731 registrations, 4 models beat their volume record: the FAW Xiali N3/N5 is at 29,267 sales, the Buick Excelle is at 28,149 units in #3, the Chevrolet Cruze moves 24,225 units at #5 and the VW Bora sells 23,949 at #6.

#3 in December, the Great Wall Tengyi C30 is strong again this month, ranking 11th with 18,283 sales. The Buick Excelle XT/GT and Kia Forte Furuidi both break into the Top 20, respectively at #16 with 16,343 sales and #19 with 13,947 sales. The new Nissan Sunny is above 10,000 units for its very first month of sales at #38 with 10,811 registrations.
