GAC sold 105,000 vehicles in February, up 2.8% from February 2019 and down 52% from 217,000 in January.


The data previously released by car companies including NIO, XPeng Motors, Li Auto, and BYD showed that their February sales declined significantly compared to January.


This is mainly due to the fact that the Chinese auto market is traditionally off-season from January to February, and the Chinese New Year holiday during this period can also cause large fluctuations in deliveries.


Last year, the Chinese New Year holiday ran from Jan. 24 to Jan. 31, and this year, it ran from Feb. 11 to Feb. 17.
