Best Selling Cars of All Time – The Top 10 List
Best Selling Cars All Time List Below Top Ten:
10. Chevrolet Impala
The Chevrolet brand is amongst GM’s most successful cars beside other automakers like Ford and Mercedes, and the acceptance of the Impala model in 1958 took GM to an entirely new level with different connotations. Chevrolet Impala has sold over 14 million units since then.
9. VW Passat
Germany became a laughing stock when it made the single cylinder, 12-hp, one-door BMW Isetta to try and recover from the world war but all that changed in 1973 when the Volkswagen Group introduced the Passat which has currently sold about 15.5 million units . The Passat CC was also ranked best among family sedans by Car and Driver Magazine and regardless of direction the future of automobiles take, the Passat will remain as one of the best cars in history.
8. Ford Model T
It may have been the best car ever produced, or maybe not. But one thing is clear: the 1908 Ford model T set the pace for great automakers of today, the likes of VW, GM and Toyota. Having recorded sales of 16.5 million units by the time its production stopped in 1927, the Ford Model T will go down as one of the most iconic cars of all time.
7. Honda Accord
Among the first Japanese cars to be made in the US, the Accord is a very successful brand which was marked by massive sales in each generational development. Currently at 17.5 million sales, the inexpensive 4-cylinder engine car is very economic and was ranked second among family sedans “still standing” by the Car and Driver Magazine.
6. Honda Civic
The $ 15600, 4-cylinder engine Civic is one of the most popular hatchbacks in the US Being very economic, its popularity was attributed by the high fuel prices in the 1970s and since then Americans have not looked back. It has sold 18.5 million units.
5. Ford Escort
Introduced in 1968, it was Ford’s answer to the army of small cars produced in Europe in the late 1960s by automakers like Fiat and VW. The Ford Escort may not have much to boast about except for a low price and economic mileage, but it helped by parlaying its success into its successor, the Ford Focus. The Escort sold over 20 million units.
4. VW Beetle
There is no better moment than a Beatle’s tune playing in a Beetle’s stereo. Introduced in 1933, the Beetle rose immediately to a league of its own; and it still is. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche following Hitler’s orders, the Beetle has acclimatized to be VW’s flag and has sold over 24 million units. Simple and elegant: that is a Beetle.
3. VW Golf
MTV did not use to play music by African-American singers, but there was no way they could ignore Michael Jackson’s thriller! Same case with the Golf: it just can not be ignored. Being VW’s least expensive compact car the golf has sold 27.5 million units to date.
2. Ford F-Series
No competition has managed to get this pickup truck marque off America’s best selling list for 30 years. Coming in many models, the F-Series remains the pickup truck to beat. It has sold over 35 million units.
1. Toyota Corolla
A rolling stone growers no moss, and with a new model every other day that is cheap, economic and practical, Corolla remains the world’s top-seller with 37.5 million units. In fact in Kenya there is a statement that goes: “The car in front of you is always a Toyota.”
