Mon Jan 16, 2012 9:46pm EST

BEIJING, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Car sales in China climbed
5.2 percent in 2011, the slowest pace since the nation's car
culture took off at the turn of the century, as consumers
shunned local brands after Beijing scrapped tax incentives for
small cars.	
    A total of 14.5 million sedans, sport utility vehicles and
multi-purpose vehicles were shipped to dealers last year, the 
China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) said.
