BEIJING -- China sales at Japan's three biggest automakers grew by more than 12 percent in July as the world's biggest auto market continued to recover from the coronavirus outbreak.
Nissan Motor Co. said on Wednesday sales in China rose 12 percent last month from a year earlier to 120,945.
China is a market that Nissan is focusing on as the embattled carmaker struggles to fix problems from ousted leader Carlos Ghosn's aggressive expansion drive.
Toyota Motor Corp. sold around 165,600 cars and light trucks under the Toyota and Lexus brands last month in China, up 19 percent year-on-year. Toyota said deliveries at Lexus rose 38 percent to 22,300 in July.
Honda Motor Co said on Wednesday it sold 136,646 vehicles in China in July, up 18 percent.
