Car Sales Booming in Wuhan Post-Covid Lockdown


Wuhan, the epicenter of the deadly COVID-19 virus, has reported a boom in car sales upon re-opening the economy and easing restrictions, according to Bloomberg News.

This signals hope for other countries, including the United States, that the automobile industry will continue to come back strong as lockdown restrictions are lifted.

The boom has left dealerships shocked because daily sales are at the same levels as they were during the pre-shutdown.

“It’s like a boom after a two-month dormancy. I thought sales would be frozen.” said Zhang Jiaqi, a salesperson at an Audi dealership. This indicates that consumers are going out and making large purchases.

“Nationwide, the weekly retail car sales numbers have been improving for more than a month,” he said.
