China's auto sales in September fall following island dispute with Japan

SHANGHAI -- China's auto sales fell 1.8 percent year-on-year in September as a territorial row between China and Japan hurt demand for Japanese-brand vehicles, an industry group said Wednesday.

Auto sales — which include vehicles produced in China through Sino-foreign joint ventures but not imports — were 1.62 million units last month, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said.

The sovereignty dispute over islands in the East China Sea, known as Diaoyu in China and Senkaku in Japan, prompted tens of thousands of Chinese to protest last month, with some urging a boycott of Japanese products.
