North America is the largest market in terms of production. In the U.S., the number of commercial vehicles produced has continuously increased since 2010. Approximately 8.5 million commercial vehicles were manufactured in 2018, while passenger car production came to just under 2.8 million units in the same year. In 2018, Asia-Oceania was the largest market for heavy truck production. Some three million units were built here in 2018.
By 2020, it is expected that Toyota will reclaim the spot as the world's largest automobile producer, outperforming the Renault-Nissan and Mitsubishi alliance as well as Volkswagen.
