European German car database

German Car Database is the biggest and most detailed database I offer for sale, covering 100% of cars sold in Germany since 1950-1970s to present. If you do business anywhere in Europe, this database is best choice because 95% of cars sold in Europe are sold in Germany.

Last update: 26 September 2021, including 7308 cars launched in 2020, 3308 cars in launched 2021, 555 cars to be launched in 2022. Most models are being added 1-3 months in advance, some electric/hybrid models are added even a year before deliveries start.

Oldest car included is Volkswagen Kafer / Beetle from 1946, and it is the only model from 1940s. Database coverage starts at 1950s for most German brands, 1960s for other European brands, 1970s for Japanese imports and 1990s for American imports. For more details check Statistics Makes sheet inside SAMPLE file, indicating number of models launched by each brand in each year.

German car market is the most diversified in the world. 95% of models from original AutoKatalog-based European Car Models & Engines Database are sold in Germany so you can use this database if you do business in any 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.


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.

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.


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.

At July 2020 update I added a column that allow me or you to quickly filter old cars and stick to 1990s- or 2000-present (similar with original projects Car Models Database and Car Models & Engines Database) but because the manufacturers diversified trims/versions in the recent years, deleting older years does not qualify you for a discount (pre-2000 cars account less than 10% of total cars).

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.

2020 updates come with different columns format

They redesigned website shortly before Christmas 2019 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.

Attempting to update again in September 2020 didn’t worked because JSON changed again.

Any attempt to scrap makes, models and generations resulted less cars that at previous update. For a moment I though that they change hierarchy and consolidating multiple models into one, but later I found that cause was that that scraper was picking for some brands ONLY current production models, the weird thing is that this happened AT RANDOM. I didn’t found other soluton than building manually list of models URL (takes 30 minutes) and in February 2020 I paid my programmer partner to make a new scraper for JSON files, publishing update on 3 March, now with 263 columns.

5 thoughts on “European German car database”

  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.

  2. Hi!

    Our vehicle e-com platvorm have to control from EU/Worldwide vehicle database “technical details” (see below) and “features”

    Client want to sell or trade-in his vehicle to us then he have to go fill forms on our platvorm which usually starts from vehicle VIN on REG NUMBER and then he have to fill punch of forms (see below) then after we can do the automatic estimate for the client vehicle.
    We need from your database according to car make and model:
    2. MILEAGE
    3. COLOR
    6. ENGINE
    11. SEATS
    12. LIGHTING
    13. WHEELS & TIRES
    14. CARGO & TOWING

    PS! Some data we will get from a national open database (!first 6 bullets) but not all. Left over 8 bullets we want to get from your database.

    Our question: Do you have these kind database. We are based in EU so that I think fits wordlwide or EU based data.

    To be more confident that you understand our problem then let’s to make a quick call or I can make a video.

    Please let me know.

    Best wishes,
    Anti Schulz

    I hope

    Please tell me do you have any database what we can use in our website to ?

    1. You also sent me an email, which I replied on 8 April and sent you a follow-up on 5 May too, but did not heard any reply from your side

      This Germany database may be best option for you, it does have ~50 columns of features, tires dimensions, cargo capacity and towing capacity. I am afraid that can’t help you with comfort and entertainment features for Europe (I do have these in America and India databases). Also what kind of data would have seats and lighting?
