The whole table is 1948-2019, but most makes sales figures are available only for recent years, usually American sales figures starts at 1970, European at 1990 or 1997 and Chinese at 2003.

Note: models with low production numbers are excluded, thus the sales by make may not match total sales by model.

Source of data: and compiled in Excel by me for easy use in your projects. I discovered this website in late 2016 and I was thinking whenever worth making a database of car sales figures. I wrote about this in “Possible upcoming projects”, and in March 2017 someone was interested in this project, so I started working. Took few hours to compile all data.

I update yearly in February when publish data for previous year. They also shows number of cars sold by month, but number of people interested in such data is too small to justify my effort to update monthly. So I included only yearly sales.

Note for 2020 updates: did published US and China 2019 data near end-January 2020 and Europe data in February, but when I attempted to run scraper on it, it ran extremely slow (3 hours to scrap 269 pages and scraper was not able to load 20% pages = would have been faster to copy-paste manually). In mid-February website went completely down. Website returned online in March with a new design, but any car make I selected, I got redirected to a TEST page which have all makes mixed up in a single page, thus is impossible for a automated script right data into right cell. I made the update in May.

Note: they may be different that sales data shown on manufacturer websites. For example Toyota include Russia in European sales. In this database, European car sales statistics is a total from the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland.
