Solid start to 2014 for Japanese automakers in China

Japanese automakers report mixed sales in China during January with some extra demand kicked up by the Lunar New Year holiday cited as a factor.

Though the recent up-and-down performance by the group in the region is expected to continue as political tensions crop up now and then, double-digit growth for the year is forecast.

Nissan saw a slip in the month, due in part to its model introduction cycle in China. Sales in both November and December were strong.

January China sales: Nissan (NSANY) -0.4% to 95,200; Toyota (TM) +18% to 85,600; Honda (HMC) +33% to 63,128.
