Used vehicle sales increase 3.9% in May

Jiji Press TOKYO (Jiji Press) — Sales of used vehicles in the nation in May rose 3.9 percent from a year earlier to 314,710 units, up for the second consecutive month, the Japan Automobile Dealers Association said Tuesday.

The figure does not include minivehicles, equipped with 660 cc or smaller engines.

Sales of standard-size used vehicles grew as domestic inventories increased on the back of a drop in exports, a JADA official said.

Of the May total, sales of passenger cars stood at 272,613 units, up 3.0 percent. Sales of trucks surged 11.3 percent to 34,215 units, and those of buses jumped 14.9 percent to 1,119 units.Speech
