SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co Ltd <7267.T> and its two local joint-ventures sold 55,553 automobiles in China in August, down 2.5 percent from a year earlier, the Japanese automaker said on Tuesday.

That follows a 1.7 percent year-on-year decline in July and a 5.6 percent fall in June.

In the first eight months of this year, through the end of August, Honda sold a total of 423,271 vehicles, down 2.9 percent from a year earlier.

Honda makes vehicles in China in partnership with Dongfeng Motor Group Co <0489.HK> and Guangzhou Automobile Group Co <2238.HK> <601238.SS>.
