Best selling car and light truck models worldwide in 2018

The Ford F-Series truck was the world’s best-selling light truck model in 2018. That year, Ford sold more than one million units of the iconic vehicle model family. This means that about two F-Series trucks were sold per minute. Overall global car sales came to almost 80 million in 2018.

 Big in North America  

  The Ford F-Series truck has a history of setting records in North America, as it is also the best-selling light truck model series in the United States and in Canada. The model is less popular outside of these two markets, though. Only a little more than 200,000 vehicles were sold in other markets.

Toyota’s next top model  

  Car shoppers also purchased more than 930,000 Toyota Corolla models, making it the world’s most popular car in 2018. Since its introduction in 1966, Toyota has sold more than 46 million Corolla vehicles. The Japanese automaker launched a redesigned version of the Corolla in 2019. The new-generation Corolla might move on to become Toyota’s next top model by 2020.
