General Motors and Volkswagen may benefit from anti-Japan protests in China
Nissan, Toyota and Honda have all reported attacks on their dealerships, and China's Passenger Car Association has predicted Japanese automakers may lose their market lead to those based in the U.S. and Germany. General Motors sold a total of 1.84 million vehicles in China under a total of three brand names, while Volkswagen moved 1.49 million units this year. By comparison, Nissan has sold just 485,000 vehicles.
The protests mark the 81st anniversary of the Manchurian Incident, which saw Japanese forces invade China.
