Nissan's sales in China increased 1.7 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months, while Honda slipped 1.4 percent in the same period, according to Japan's Kyodo News.

Toyota sold about 900,000 units by November, a 12.2 percent rise, but its full-year sales goal of 1.1 million units seems out of reach.

Statistics showed Japanese brands sold a combined 2.41 million vehicles by the end of October. This represented a 14.21 percent market share in the country's passenger vehicle segment. German automaker Volkswagen alone delivered 2.29 million cars to Chinese customers in the same period.
