Mazda Motor and its local joint-ventures sold 12,637 automobiles in China in August, down 23.6 per cent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on Tuesday.

That follows an 18.5 per cent year-on-year decline in July and a 31.2 per cent fall in June.

In the first eight months of this year, through the end of August, Mazda sold a total of 106,846 vehicles, down 20.8 per cent from a year earlier.

Mazda makes cars in China in partnership with Chongqing Changan Automobile Co Ltd. It also has a sales venture with FAW Group.
