Japan’s used vehicle sales rose 2.7pc in Apr

Japan’s used vehicle sales in April climbed 2.7 percent from a year earlier to 318,115 units, gaining ground for the sixth consecutive month, the Japan Automobile Dealers Association said on Monday.

A larger number of vehicles flowed into the second-hand market as a revival of incentives to promote fuel-efficient automobiles pushed up new auto sales, association officials said.
