Hello everyone!

The Top 150 best selling models in China in January 2011 can be seen here:

China January 2011 Top 150

Very interesting month in China, the biggest ever in terms of volume with 1.894 million vehicles sold (in 1 month!) including 1.529 million passenger cars. This is also possibly the biggest month ever in any country in the world as the USA probably never had such a month.

Enjoy!
Matt

Hats off to you Aussie.

Great compilation of data by you.

OT:

Chevrolet Impala holds the sales record (still unbeaten i guess) of 1 million cars in 1965.

Hey thanks very much Skyline!
Yes Impala holds the record of the most units sold in a single country in a year. I will cover this when I update the historical data for the USA... so bear with me on this one...

thanks again

Reason for high China sales was because there is a plan to limit car sales in Beijing so everyone is buying to beat the quota

Default The-worlds-top-selling-cars-by-country

MODS : Please move this to the appropriate section if required.

I just came across this article on
The world’s top selling cars by country

What are the best selling cars around the world?-world-fav-cars.jpg

Not surprised with large number of countries with VW Golf and Toyota Hilux as top selling vehicles.

But, definitely to see WAGON R (yes, wagon R) as top selling product in JAPAN.

What shocks me is that Toyota Corolla is the highest seller in Pakistan, Afghan and Bangladesh.
Is it because they are cheap there I am guessing all must be imported. How do they have so much money?

Edit: Add Zambia, Zimbabwe and Burundi to the list.

Thumbs up Re: The-worlds-top-selling-cars-by-country

Surprising to know that elsewhere in the world Toyota is leading the sales but back in Japan its the Suzuki which rules the roost.

Toyota as seen in the map has a major presence in most of the African countries a total domination there.

Pakistan's total monthly car sales is less than 10000. Out of this 10K Corolla sells around 2-3K per month.

Toyota says its Camry is certain to win the U.S. best-selling car title for the 11th straight year.

Quote:
With slightly more than two months left in 2012, the Camry's nearly 67,000-unit lead over the second-place Honda Accord is insurmountable
Quote:
More impressive, is that the Camry will exceed Toyota's ambitious 2012 sales target by 15 percentage points. Originally, Toyota projected it would sell 360,000 Camrys this year. But Toyota should finish the year at 400,000 Camrys sold.
