Due to the withdrawal of the stimulating policies, car's growth rate came down and sales volume of cross-type passenger car vehicle began to decline. MPV and SUV market remained the increase rate of more than 10% YOY, becoming an important support for driving the growth of passenger vehicle market. With the growth of China's per capita ownership, many users have begun to change their previous focus from "passenger vehicle property" to “multi-purpose sports vehicle” when purchasing their second, or even the third vehicle. For this reason, the passenger vehicle market share of MPV and SUV is increasing yearly. Foreign brands still has a strong position in Chinese passenger vehicle market, China's own brand is facing huge market pressures. 
    In 2011 H1, China's commercial vehicle output was 2.11million, increasing by 6.07% YOY, sales volume of commercial vehicle was 2.22million, increasing by 3.67% YOY.
    The withdrawal of China's policy of “Automobiles Going to Rural Areas” and replacement policy and other new policies which aim to encourage automobile consumption had a direct impact on the sales of light, mini-trucks. In 2011 H1, China's light-trucks (including non-complete light-trucks)sales volume was 1.02 million, decreasing by 4.31% YOY; mini-trucks (including non-complete mini-trucks)sales volume was 264,300, decreasing by 7.54% YOY.
