Worldwide global database

Warning: cars are sold in various countries with different specifications (even if model name is the same), due to this reason the worldwide databases contains ONLY make, model and production years.

Any database with higher detail level (body styles, engines, transmission, prices, etc) should be should be specific to one country for accuracy reasons, or in worst case, to a continent. Beware of websites like CarQueryAPI mixing cars sold in multiple regions, not accurate for any market and missing models even from US and EU markets.

    Automobile production

    Automobile production by country

    I compiled one Excel table with production figures listed by OICA (which have separate report for each year from 1999 to present). Reports are published yearly in March.

    Car sales statistics

    I compiled this table in Excel sourcing data from CarSalesBase.com, a website I discovered in late 2016. I update yearly in February when sales figures for previous calendar year are published. Contains number of cars sold in United States, Europe, China, breakdown by make and model.

    The original version of Car Models List in .DOC format, started in 2003. It dates back from the childhood hobby for writing book-style printer-friendly documents in Word (although I never printed it and I guess that nobody will do this).
