Details about the monthly unit vehicle sales for the identified countries from January 2019 to December 2019, broken down by type, including passenger cars (PC), trucks, buses, and light commercial vehicles (LCV), have been entered in rows 5-195, columns A-P of the "2019 New Vehicle Sales" tab of the attached spreadsheet. Additionally, the monthly top 10 best-selling models/brands for the identified countries have been entered in rows 5-436, columns A-AM of the "2019 Best-Selling Models" tab of the same spreadsheet.
Summary of Findings
- The 10 best-selling models for each month were available for the US, China, Japan, Thailand, and Germany and entered in their corresponding cells.
- The rest of the countries had their best-selling models locked behind paywalls. Consequently, we have entered the monthly top-selling makers/brands, based on the number of unit vehicles sold, in their corresponding cells.
- Malaysia and the Philipines did not have details about their best-selling models or brands. Consequently, we have entered N/A in their corresponding cells.
- Details about the type of vehicles sold were unavailable for some countries, such as Thailand, Singapore, Italy, and Spain. Consequently, we provided the monthly totals of the domestic vehicle unit sales made for each.
- We have also included comments in the spreadsheet for unique cases encountered, for instance, Indonesia, where the January 2019 sales were made up of sales volumes from only the major Japanese original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the country as compiled by Marklines since a comprehensive list including minor OEMs was unavailable.
- An exhaustive search through various automotive industry databases and market intelligence sites, including Statista, did not yield any results for all the missing data points. We, therefore, concluded that the information was not publicly available.
- The five countries covered in the North and South American region include the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.
- The 14 countries covered in the Asia/Oceania region include Japan, China, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, Singapore, Pakistan, the Philippines, Australia, and New Zealand.
- A total of 15 countries have been covered in the Western European region, including Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Denmark, Portugal, Finland, and Norway.
- A total of 5 countries have been covered in the Central and Eastern European region, including Russia, Turkey, Poland, Czech Rep, and Ukraine.
- South Africa and Israel have been covered from the Middle East and African region.
