Global car sales by manufacturer 2018

Global car sales by manufacturer in 2018 (in million units)

by I. Wagner, last edited Jan 30, 2019
Global car sales by manufacturer 2018 The statistic depicts global vehicle sales by manufacturer in 2017 and 2018. Japan-based automotive manufacturer Toyota's global vehicle sales came to just shy of 10.6 million units in 2018. Over the past decades, China has emerged as one of the main growth markets for players in the global automobile industry, with car sales amounting to 28 million vehicles in 2018. Iran became one of the most exciting market in terms of passenger car production before falling victim to U.S. sanctions.

Leading automobile manufacturers worldwide

Worldwide car sales were expected to reach just under 81 million units in 2017. Increased demand from Chinese customers is predicted to offset sluggish car sales in Brazil and Russia, where a lack of consumer confidence and Western sanctions are adding to economic uncertainty.

The ranking of the major automotive companies in terms of brand value includes the leading automotive manufacturers Volkswagen, Toyota, General Motors and Renault-Nissan. The Toyota Motor Corporation sold around 10.6 million light and commercial vehicles in 2018. Toyota’s main markets include Japan and the United States. The U.S. is the second largest market for passenger vehicles worldwide. In November 2018, the U.S. automotive industry reported some 1.38 million vehicle sales. The upward trend in the world’s second-largest market for light vehicles is set to continue through 2019. In light of an aging light vehicle fleet, a growing number of people will also likely replace their old vehicle with a new one. On average, U.S. passenger cars are 11.6 years old. In the United States, the Toyota Camry and the Toyota Corolla/Matrix are ranked among the best-selling car models.
