Who else would take a pic of himself with a Toyota Avanza, right?

Hi and welcome to BestSellingCarsBlog!

I’m Matt, originally from France and now living in Sydney, Australia. Yep this is good old me above, posing next to a new generation Toyota Avanza at Denpasar International Airport, Bali Indonesia in May 2012…

Following car sales figures around the world has been a bit of a hobby for me since my childhood, and I thought instead of keeping it to myself I should share it on a blog, so here it is! I hope you’ll enjoy it, feel free to leave comments if you have info to add or if you think of anything I could do better.

BestSellingCarsBlog now covers all countries in the world with more than 1 million inhabitants, this equals to 177 countries and territories, all listed on the right hand side of the page, so your country must be there! If it is not, it is because there is less than a million people living there, but if you do have detailed data for any other country that doesn’t feature on the blog please do let me know by commenting here! You will see a few countries are listed that have less than 1m population (Iceland, Bhutan, Luxembourg, Monaco), this is because I was able to get official data, and this takes priority over the population size.

There are now 107 countries and territories with official data thanks to many of you sharing information with me. But there are still 64 unloved countries on this blog for which I haven’t managed to get my hands on any official car sales data yet. What I have done for these is watch hundreds of hours of recent YouTube videos of their streets, and based on the cars I could see I have ventured an estimation of the best-selling models. Far from perfect, which is why I need official data!

So this is where I need your help dear readers! You will find below the full list of countries still missing official data. If you have any info about any of them, simply comment on this page or fill in the ‘Contact Us’ form by clicking on the tab on the top left side of your screen. Anything at all will help and I thank you in advance for any data you may be able to share to make this site even better!
