Vehicle sales - selected countries 2018 Globally, China accounted for the largest number of light vehicle sales in 2018 with over 28 million vehicle sales. At of the end of 2018, China was estimated to be the world’s largest automobile market based on new car registrations. The United States accounted for the second largest number of light vehicle sales at that time with about 17.2 million vehicle sales. There have been many changes in the vehicle industry in recent years and changing markets and technologies have affected car sales in dramatic ways.
Vehicle sales

The recent changes in vehicle sales and trade globally due to political tensions, changes to key markets, and changes in technology have shown to already be affecting the car industry. Vehicle sales showed some decline in recent years, but long-term trends show a steep increase in sales since the 1990s.

Vehicle production

Vehicle production is also showing some stagnation with a reduction of almost two million units in recent years. Declining production levels in Europe, Asia-Oceania and North America were successfully offset by rising sales in Africa, South Africa, and among the Commonwealth Independent States (CIS).
