Honda says Jan China auto sales up 33.6 pct y/y

SHANGHAI, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co Ltd and its two local joint ventures sold 63,128 automobiles in China in January, up 33.6 percent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on Monday.

That follows a 60.4 percent year-on-year jump in December and 101.5 percent rise in November, which were partly boosted by a low base from the year before when sales tanked due to a surge in anti-Japanese sentiment following a territorial dispute between Beijing and Tokyo.

In 2013, Honda sold a record 756,882 vehicles, up 26.4 percent from a year earlier.
