She added the fall was not linked to trade tensions. The fall marks the maiden drop since the first quarter of 2017, when GM’s China sales fell 5.2 percent. GM switched to reporting only quarterly China sales earlier this year, scrapping monthly sales figures it had previously revealed.

China’s main auto industry body, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM), is set to reveal September auto sales later this week.
