The United States of America currently holds the record for the most car sales in one year. The record was made in 2000, when 17.4 million cars were sold in the country. Industry experts are now saying China is on path to surpass that record.
Projected sales for China are expected to easily exceed the record in 2011. J. D. Power and Associates predicts sales to reach 18.3 million, while General Motors China president, Kevin Wale, recently said sales should top 19 million.
China is currently the biggest auto market in the world after last year the country sold 13.5 million cars, overtaking the US as the biggest market. Reports say the Chinese government is currently offering a $500 incentive grant when purchasing a small car too, which will help push sales into record numbers.
