The Statista reports for the top 10 largest vehicle manufacturers in the world are out, and they come with some reclassifications, but nothing out of the ordinary. Here we go:

  1. Volkswagen Group – Topping the list with 10.9 million vehicles, the VW group that sells cars under the Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Skoda, and of course, the Volkswagen marques is the largest car manufacturer of 2018.
  2. Toyota Motor Corporation – Was first in 2017, but is second now with a production output of 10.6 million cars. The Japanese giant has been consistently producing over 10 million vehicles every year since 2012.
  3. General Motors – The American corporation who owns iconic brands like the Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, GMC, Holden, Baojun, and Wuling is third, with 8.38 million cars.
  4. Hyundai Motor Group – Hyundai, KIA, and Genesis have produced a total of 7.39 million cars, taking fourth place in the world.
  5. Ford Motor Company – Ford remains stable in fifth place, with 6 million vehicles having left their production lines in 2018.
  6. Nissan Motor Co. – Nissan is sixth with 5.52 million vehicles, but if we take into account Renault’s and Mitsubishi’s production, the alliance would come second with 10.6 million cars.
  7. Honda Motor Company – The Japanese dropped a position to take seventh place with 5.32 million cars, and the prospect for the future is negative as they are closing down UK-based lines.
  8. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles – The Italian-American corporation managed to keep the eighth position from last year, with 4.84 million cars.
  9. Groupe Renault – The French manufacturer who also sells the Dacia, Alpine, Samsung Motors, and Lada, has outputted a total of 3.88 million cars.
