Historical Data spanning the past four decades is now available on BSCB. Only brands for 1983 and 1987, but then the Opel Astra was #1 in 1992 and 1993 before being passed by the Toyota Carina (the Europe-specific version), which stayed on top of the Danish models ranking until its replacement, the Toyota Avensis, came about in 1998. The Avensis would end up in first place in 2006 and 2009 as well.

The Toyota Avensis was #1 in Denmark in 1998, 2006 and 2009

The Ford Mondeo was leader in 2001, Peugeot then took the reigns of Danish car sales placing the Peugeot 206 in pole position in 2002 and the Peugeot 307 in the lead from 2003 to 2005 but had to wait until 2016 to see one of its models in pole position again, the 208, also the 2017, 2018, 2020 and 2022 winner. The VW Passat was #1 in 2007, the Skoda Fabia in 2008, the Toyota Aygo in 2010, the Chevrolet Spark in 2011 and in 2012 the VW Up! became the first model to sell over 10,000 units in a single year in Denmark, reiterating that performance in 2013 and 2014. In 2019 the Nissan Qashqai became the first ever SUV to top the annual Danish charts, followed in the Ford Kuga in 2021. In 2023, the Tesla Model Y took a firm lead, with the Tesla brand also #1.
