New vehicle sales in Japan jumped 15 percent in July year-on-year. Japan Automobile Dealers Association says new registrations for vehicles including cars, trucks and buses but excluding minicars, totaled 333 thousand units last month, the 12th straight monthly rise.

Japanese auto sales have been robust on the back of government incentives and tax breaks launched last year to boost eco-friendly cars, and to help Japan's economy recover from its worst post-war recession. But automakers could suffer a backlash when the subsidies for green purchases expire at the end of September, after they were extended in March.
