Altogether 18.4 million new vehicles were sold in all of 2014 during which auto production jumped 9 percent. To address the generally high pollution prevalent in the Beijing capital, March1, 2013 saw the introduction of the Beijing 5 emission standard. This is somewhat like Euro 5. 2016 will already see the advent of its successor Beijing 6.
