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.

Wheels and Tires Size API

Coverage: 1953-present, worldwide, in case of cars sold with different specs in various regions, the “market of sale” column shows EUDM (Europe), USDM (United States), MXDM (Mexico), LADM (Latin America), AUDM (Australia), etc. Cars sold with same specs all over the world have this column empty, so there is no way to filter out only cars sold in a particular country.

Car sales data

Source of data: carsalesbase.com and compiled in Excel by me for easy use in your projects. I update yearly in February when carsalesbase.com publish data for previous year. carsalesbase.com 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.

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).
