    At last, someone who has the nous to put together a proper global ranking! And it’s beautifully researched: you did what I would have done by including the Excelle XT with the Opel Astra, all the Corolla variants together, Sagitar and Clasico with Jetta, etc.

    Tiny question: did the Indian-market Chevrolet Optra Magnum and Colombian Chevrolet Optra Advance get counted among the Buick Excelle numbers (same car again)? I’m wondering if that might put it just ahead of the Logan.

    I am really grateful that you are transparent enough to have those notes and this is a really valuable page!

      Thanks Jack I really appreciate your praise!
      Make sure you check the more recent world updates as well :)
      Yep all Chevrolet Optras are counted with the Buick Excelle.
      Hope this helps
      cheers

    Hi Matt, may I know what was Passat’s sales for just the B7 version? Is Magotan also based on B7? Thanks.

    Hi. Is the Auris not counted as part of the Corolla sales? It is just a rebadged Corolla hatchback no? As much a part of the Corolla family as the Matirx I’d have thought.

      Hi Carson,
      Yes the Auris is counted as part of Corolla sales.
      If you look at the notes at the bottom of the chart you will see an explanation about which models are counted as part of the different nameplates.
      cheers

    Forbes must have added the i30 into Elantra range so that it was more than a million.

    One question to Matt: Volkswagen counts Passat, CC, Magotan and Santana together. Is the Santana (which is Passat II sedan) included in the Passat-sales? You also counted Jetta II together with Jetta/Bora etc.

    I know, this list is may be the most difficult one … ;)

    Amazing sales for the Qashqai. I think Nissan had estimated sales of about 60-80k cars a year, you can just image the type of money they’re making on each car they sell now.

    Polo has always been a successful car, but never to this extent.
    Huge!

    Well done Matt,far more reliable looking now…

    I assume Honda Accord figures are for both the US and Euro versions,with the Euro versions including the Honda Spirior in China,and Acura TSX in US markets ???
