SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co Ltd (7267.T) and its two local joint-ventures sold 51,140 automobiles in China in July, down 1.7 percent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on Friday.

That follows a 5.6 percent year-on-year decline in June and a 4.6 percent climb in May.

In the first seven months of this year, through the end of July, Honda sold a total of 367,718 vehicles, down 3 percent from a year earlier.

Honda makes vehicles in China in partnership with Dongfeng Motor Group Co (0489.HK) and Guangzhou Automobile Group Co (2238.HK) (601238.SS).
