About This Statistic

This statistic shows the revenue of the leading car manufacturers worldwide in the fiscal year of 2015. The Ford Motor Company generated almost 150 billion U.S. dollars in revenue in the fiscal year of 2015.

Car manufacturers based on revenue

In terms of vehicle sales and revenue, Toyota, Volkswagen and General Motors are the most successful automakers worldwide. However, while Toyota has experienced flat revenue streams over the past three years, Volkswagen, apparently with the help of fraudulent methods, was able to increase its revenue to around 236.6 billion U.S. dollars in the fiscal year of 2015, up from around 179 billion U.S. dollars in the year, when General Motors launched an initial public offering. The global automotive industry was hit hard by the financial crisis of 2008-2009, and the North American automaker declared its roughly 91 billion U.S. dollar bankruptcy in the wake of the crisis. In 2009, passenger car sales slumped in most markets, with the exception of China, which emerged as the key sales market for passenger cars. Chinese manufacturers - such as Dongfeng, Geely, Chang'an and BAIC - are beginning to cut the cord from their joint venture partners from other parts of Asia and the Western world. It is yet to be seen if carmakers from China will make an impact in the global automotive market similar to Chinese manufacturers of trucks or heavy equipment.
