SHENZHEN - Chinese automaker Chongqing Changan Automobile Co Ltd reported a 24.8 percent annual decrease in automobile sales in June.

Its auto sales totaled 141,655 units last month, compared to 188,458 units in the same month a year ago, the automaker said in a filing to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.

Its total sales in the first half of the year reached 825,208 units, down 31.7 percent year-on-year, the carmaker said.

The figures include sales by Changan's plant in Chongqing and its joint ventures, including Changan Ford and Changan Mazda, as well as Changan's subsidiaries.
