Leading car brand sales in Italy 2015-2017 Which brand sold the most cars in Italy in 2017? Perhaps unsurprisingly, Fiat topped the country’s sales ranking with sales of over 400,000 cars that year. The Italian car brand was followed by Volkswagen (roughly 145,000 passenger cars sold) and Ford (approximately 134,000 cars). The source does not specify which car models were behind these sales numbers. It is unlikely, however, that electric cars added much to the total sales number. In 2017, the Nissan Leaf was the most-sold electric car model in Italy (ID 26992) with 462 units. The sales of Tesla Model S and Renault Zoe added up to 217 units and 210 units, respectively.
