BEIJING - Sales of heavy trucks in China registered robust year-on-year growth in August to set a new record in years, industry data showed.

Around 128,000 heavy trucks were sold last month, surging 75 percent year-on-year, according to estimation by auto industry information service provider cvworld.cn.

The figure broke a record set in August 2017, when some 93,700 trucks were sold, and witnessed a five-month streak of sales peaks.

Given the continued boom in the market, cvworld.cn expected the annual sales to set a record high of 1.4 million.
