Commercial vehicles comprise a category of motor vehicles used for commercially transporting goods or passengers; this category includes trucks, vans, and buses. In 2018, approximately 4.2 million heavy commercial vehicles and just over 20 million light commercial vehicles were produced throughout the world. Asia-Oceania is the leading region for heavy truck production with about three million units produced in the Asia-Oceania region in 2018.
The classification of vehicles varies across markets. In the United States, vehicles are often grouped into eight different types, ranging from Class 1 light duty trucks, including pickups such as the Toyota Tacoma, to Class 8 heavy duty haulers such as the Freightliner Cascadia. Class 8 vehicles are heavy trucks weighing more than 26,000 and up to 33,000 pounds. The U.S. commercial vehicle production industry has seen steady incremental increases since dramatic losses in production during the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Since 2010, the production of commercial vehicles in the United States has jumped from around five million units to 8.5 million units in 2018. Daimler's Freightliner currently holds around 37 percent of the U.S. Class 8 truck market.
