Japanese car sales in S. Korea for September drop 60 percent due to anti-Japan sentiment


Sales figures for Japanese cars here in the
nation dropped even further last month. The Korea Automobile Importers & Distributors
Association says the number of newly registered Japanese cars was down almost 60 percent on-year. The number has been falling since Koreans
started boycotting Japanese products in July. Before the boycott, Japanese car sales in
Korea had grown every year since 2014. The total number of newly registered foreign
cars was up 17-point-3 percent on-year, mainly due to increased sales of German imports.
