China's auto sales surged 13.4 percent year-on-year in April, an industry group said Thursday, despite weakness in the world's second largest economy.
A total of 1.84 million vehicles were sold last month in China, the largest auto market in the world, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers said in a statement.
"Auto production and sales showed steady growth in April and the overall market performance was relatively good," the group said.
In the first four months of 2013 vehicle sales reached 7.27 million units, up 13.2 percent year-on-year, it said.
