European German car database

German Database is the biggest in terms of file size, breakdown of models and number of data fields. German car market is the most diversified in the world. 95% of car models sold in Europe are sold in Germany too (95% of models from European Car Models & Engines Database are included also in German database, with more details) so you can use this database even if you are from another country of Europe. Example of cars sold in (Eastern) Europe but not in Germany, missing from German car database but available in the original European database: old Dacia and Skoda models, some Lada models, Moskwitch, GAZ, UAZ, ZAZ, FSO, Zastava. Last update: 12 July 2020.

Last release: 12 July 2020, including 10617 cars launched in 2019, 2820 cars in launched 2020, and 15 cars scheduled for launch in 2021. Most cars are included in database 1-2 months ahead of launch, some cars, especially electric/hybrid ones, are announced sometimes a year in advance.

The website was originally 1990s-present, consequently some cars produced during 1990s do not have starting year. During 2016 they done extensive research on automobile history and coverage was extended to 1950s for German domestic manufacturers and 1970s other makes from Europe or Asia.

Looking for 2000-present at discounted price? Database being made in European format with production start/end year, there is not possible to filter automatically cars older than year X like in case of American and Australian car databases. I need to manually add a filtering column as I did for European Car Models Database and Car Models & Engines Database, but because this database is made via web scraping, each time I update database, anything added will be lost. So the only option is to purchase whole database 1950-present. Sorry for this.

Legal: data belongs to German Automobile Club, turned into Excel database after I paid my programmer partner to make a scraping software for this website, each scrap taking about 7 days at 3 seconds per car. I am not responsible for any legal issues you may face for using data copied from another website. If you care about legality, buy instead, which is an original product “Made by Teoalida” with no equivalent on internet, as the data is sourced from books.

Note for 2020 updates

They redesigned website shortly before Christmas and now data is provided in JSON format rather than HTML. I paid my programmer to make a JSON scraper, I ran it and got 318 columns of data instead of 206 columns before. After cleaning duplicates and empty / junk columns, it resulted a 240-column Excel database to sell you (the extra columns are make ID, model ID, model’s make ID, and so on, allowing you to make easier a multi-table relational database, this is temporary and subject to change according suggestions I may get from you and others). Everything good so far, BUT…

At time they redesigned website, their number of cars dropped with 341, many model names were changed, around 1-10 February they did an update that reduced number of models from 1383 to 1273 (by putting cars like BMW M3 under 3-Series rather than separate model) while increased number of versions from 126912 to 127821, by 14 February they reached 127887 cars, I didn’t released February update to customers (until March) because I was hoping for a bigger update from them, but since 14 February no single car been added, making a total of ONLY 914 cars been added since 15 December to end-March (for comparison, during 2019 they were adding ~1000 cars each month).

An update came on 1 April, adding 899 versions while number of models been further reduced with 90. I keep scraping weekly to monitor any change in number of cars.

In July 2020 website changed its JSON coding again, the resulted database have 239 columns now.

Teoalida’s Car Database originates in 2003, sourcing data from multiple AutoKatalog books issued yearly and typing data in Excel manually in a data structure invented by me, making an original product with no equivalent on internet, which you can use in your website or mobile app without risking to be sued by anyone. Because AutoKatalog is a printed book, space is limited so it include one row for each model engine, and if it was offered with both manual and automatic transmission, performance data is provided for manual one. This makes my database the perfect choice for auto parts businesses which do not need multiple rows per for each model engine.

However, a small amount of customers, who are interested in performance data, are not happy with my original database, they would like separate row for manual and automatic transmissions.

Since AutoKatalog was discontinued in 2014, I source data from German website to continue maintaining my database, In late 2015 I paid a programmer to make an application that visit each page of German website and scrap/extract the data into Excel, then I manipulate data to match the format of my car database, to have an original product which I can copyright.

I was NOT intending to sell the German database, but in late 2016 several people told me that this database having more rows is more suitable for their projects than my original database, so I made it public. Most people still preferred my original Car Models & Engines Database because the German one have equipment levels that are making too many rows for same engine.


Teoalida’s original car database
Demo / sample
German car database
Demo / sample
Cover whole Europe, including Rover high-powered variants sold only in UK, 2.0 litres cars sold only in Italy (example Ferrari 208), low-cost cars for Eastern Europe (Fiat Albea, Peugeot 301, Renault Symbol, Lada, Volga, etc) Cover only cars sold in Germany
Shows period of production as year only, based on their appearance in AutoKatalog, which is a bit off (cars launched in november-december may indicate starting year as next year) Show period of production as year/month in which the car was sold in Germany
One row per engine, regardless if it was offered with both manual and automatic transmission One row per each transmission type, also one row per each equipment level (this can be stripped off, don’t know who would need equipment levels that have same specs)
1 column for fuel efficiency (combined) 3 columns for fuel efficiency (urban, highway, combined)
Few additional columns: bore × stroke, compression ratio, camshaft, track width Does NOT include bore × stroke, compression ratio, camshaft, track width

Is legal to sell German database after alteration?

You should NOT sell a database with data copied from German automobile club website that is not your original research. I will not buy such database and risk having legal troubles with automobile club
You should NOT sell a database with data copied from German automobile club but if you alter the data and create a semi-original product you can sell it and I will buy.
You CAN sell data scraped from German automobile club even in raw format, if they publish it online means that we are allowed to copy it in our websites.

  1. The database i received has far exceeded my expectations, not only by the size but also from the attention to detail from the seller.

    I needed a custom database with some special columns and teoalida offered to update it to my database FREE of charge!
    That’s right!

    Support was exceptional and i had really a pleasure to work with!

    Also teoalida is a very nice and friendly guy always eager to help you.
    So if you need a well maintained car database you came to the right place.
