REFILE-GM says Feb China auto sales down 10.6 pct yr-on-yr
March 5 (Reuters) - General Motors Co and its China joint ventures sold 215,070 vehicles in the country in February, down 10.6 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. automaker said on Tuesday.
That compares with a 26 percent year-on-year rise achieved in January. Data for January and February have been skewed due to the timing of the week-long Spring Festival holiday which fell in January in 2012 but came in February this year.
GM makes vehicles in China in partnership with FAW Group and SAIC Motor Corp.
