MG in Top 10 for second month in a row as Chinese car sales continue to surge

Sales of Chinese cars in Australia have overtaken those from Germany and the USA for the first three months of this year – led by MG which made it into the Top 10 for the second month in row and ahead of fellow brands LDV and Great Wall Motors which made it into the Top 20. It is the first time in our automotive history that China has been the fourth-biggest source of motor vehicles after Japan, Thailand and South Korea in a quarterly-year tally.
