world-best-selling-car Honda-Civic_Type_R_Concept-2016

World Best Selling Car 2016 ranking with Ford F-Series advanced in second place, behind Toyota Corolla, peanuts down from the 1 million wall. Honda Civic shines, up 8 spots ranking 9th.

Sourcing from the F2M Global Mobility Database, actually tracking over 3.500 vehicle’s model sold in more than 150 countries, today we are able to provide you with the exclusive ranking of World Best Selling Car, including all light vehicles.

Please consider we are able to break down data by single region, country and to aggregate data by segments, brands, type. Any detail you would need could be delivered immediately, just contacting us for a quote.

The ranking is done respecting the customer view in the market, so we do not assembly similar models sold under different nameplates (for instance, Honda Fit is not added to Honda Jazz (if you do not like they are split, please ask why to Honda Motor…) while we assembly sales done by the same nameplate under different body style. So Corolla sales includes all versions, hatch and sedan (but not the Auris, same car with a different name. Again, naming car is not our job…)

The Top 100 Ranking

Said this, the final 2016 ranking propose several news.

The first is represented by the sales lost of the market leader, the Toyota Corolla down 3.6% with over 1.3 million units, failing to beat its record of 1.35 million done last year.

The second fact was the achievement of the second place for a Ford model, two years after the start of Focus decline. Indeed, the Ford F-Series, market leader in US and Canada since 40 years advanced in second place with 993.753 sales, peanuts down of the 1 million wall, up an outstanding 7.6%, overtaking the best selling model in Europe, the Volkswagen Golf (all versions) down 6.2% from the last year all time record at 991.000 units.

In the fourth place the nice Hyundai Elantra, recently renovated and very successful with its 788.000 sales, up 1 spot and 3.5% from 2015, ahead of the best selling SUV, the Honda CR-V, at record sales of 752.000 units.

Further losing terrain, the Ford Focus ranked sixth, down 2 spots, with 734.000 units (-11.7%). the Focus has lost over one fourth of million in the last three years, but the main reason was the launch in China of the Ford Escort, a C class that has cannibalized the Focus with near 300.000 sales in the 2016 (ranking 59th).

The Toyota RAV4 failed the attach to the SUV leadership while raising in 7th place with 724.000 sales (+9.4%) up 3 spots, ahead of the leader of the small cars, the Volkswagen Polo, sold in 704.000 units (+0.9%).

In ninth place one of the star of the year, the Honda Civic, just renovated and up 8 spots with 668.000 sales, followed in 10th place by the Toyota Camry, leader of the Mid size segment, down 4 spots with 660.000 sales (-11.5%).

In 11th place, the light commercial vehicles in the World, the Chinese best selling Wuling Hongguang with 650.000 sales (-0.8%).
