Sinotrust predicted that China's output and sales volume of passenger vehicles will rise by about 30 percent in March. More than 10 brand-new models will be launched this month, stimulating sales to a certain degree. At the same time, more people will intend to buy a vehicle as the warmer weather will facilitate trips. In addition, potential customers will buy vehicles in March because auto prices will drop slightly and vehicle delivery will be faster.
