14:18, December 07, 2012

BEIJING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Japanese auto brands are gradually recovering from the fallout of anti-Japan protests on the back of heavy sales promotions, according to new data.

Data from several leading Japanese automakers showed improved sales in China last month. New car sales at Honda Motor Co. surged 70.9 percent to 41,205 units from October to November.

Although the figure still marked a decline of 29.2 percent from a year earlier, the decrease narrowed from 54 percent in October and 40.5 percent in September.

Toyota Motor Corp. saw its new car sales jump 39.9 percent to 63,800 units in November from October. The figure fell 22.1 percent year on year, improving from a plunge of 44.1 percent in October and 48.9 percent in September.

Other Japanese automakers that saw an increase in Chinese sales last month included Nissan Motor Co. and Mazda Motor Corp.
