Simple database (make and model names)
Source of data: www.oica.net, I compiled all years in one Excel table and chart for easy comparison. Data is updated yearly in March.
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.
European Car of the Year, list of winners, 2nd and 3rd places for 1964-2016, plus 4th to 8th places for 2002-2015, showing number of points for each car model. Source of data: http://www.caroftheyear.org/previous-winners/, compiled in Excel for easy visualization.
(free database with no updates)
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).
