China becomes top global auto production site, report says

China became the world’s largest auto production site in 2013 with the most dynamic growth, Xinhua news agency reported Tuesday, citing PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Germany. Of the 82.5 million light vehicles produced globally last year, 18.7 million, or 22.7 percent, were driven out of factories in China, PwC was quoted as saying in a report. Auto production in China saw an increase of 12 percent in 2013, the most dynamic growth around the world, it said. PwC expects global auto production to increase 5.84 percent this year to 87.36 million units. More German brand cars would be made abroad, especially in China and the United States.
