BEIJING, Dec. 18 (Xinhua) -- China's pickup truck exports surged 172 percent year on year in November as the industry saw improvements in production capacity this year, according to the China Passenger Car Association.

A total of 42,000 pickup trucks were sold in China last month, up 1.8 percent month on month. However, the figure was 12.2 percent lower compared with the same period last year, said the association.
