Top 10 Most Sold Cars of All Time
The best-selling cars don't make the hearts of car enthusiasts beat faster. They're not the sexiest cars. They're not original. So to speak, they can be found on every street corner. However, they are cars with a familiar name and the ability to adapt to consumer needs. Many of these cars have been around for decades, while sales have not declined.
10. Chevrolet Impala
The Chevrolet Impala has been on the market since 1958. The popularity of this type of car has declined over the years. But since the last few years, the car has been rediscovered. The design from the year 2014 is praised by many. The model has received a five-star crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
9. Volkswagen Passat
The Volkswagen Passat has been around for seven generations. It was first sold in 1973. The car is a solid family car. The Volkswagen Passat continues to sell well because it offers a combination of a touch of luxury and an affordable price.
8. Ford Model T
Already in the year 1908 the Ford Model T was produced, destined for the average American. It was designed in Detroit by Henry Ford and one of the first cars to be mass-produced. The old model has not been produced since the year 1929, but it is still on the number 8 on this list. The model took only 20 years to sell more cars than most types of cars sell over many decades.
7. Honda Accord
In the year 1976, the Honda Accord came on sale. It was the first Japanese manufacturer car produced in America. Since 1989 it has been one of the best-selling cars in the United States. The Honda Accord is known as a safe, reliable family car.
6. Honda Civic
At the moment Honda was about to withdraw from the car industry, the brand launched the Honda Civic. The Honda Civic, dating from the year 1972, saved Honda from ruin. The type became a great success. It is a good thing that Honda continued to sell cars because otherwise, they would have missed out on the many millions of sales of the Honda Civic (and the Honda Accord, the number 7 on this list).
5. Ford Escort
The Ford Escort has been sold in Europe since 1968. Since 1981 the model is also sold in America. At this moment there are no more recent cars produced with the name Escort. From 2016 a new type of Escort will be sold in China.
4. Volkswagen Beetle
One of the longest-running production cars in history is the Volkswagen Beetle. The Dutch translation is the Volkswagen Beetle. This type of Volkswagen was built according to Hitler's prescription in the year 1938. In the '60s the model became very popular because of its cheap price and funky design. Still today the Volkswagen Beetle is sold in abundance.
3. Volkswagen Golf (the best-sold car in Europe)
The best selling Volkswagen model is Golf. The model originates from the year 1974 and is still sold in large numbers. Worldwide the Volkswagen Golf is number 3 on the list of best-selling cars, but in Europe, the car is the best-selling model. The Volkswagen Golf was out of production for a while but has been produced again since 2010. The current generation Volkswagen Golf has several trim levels, including a diesel option.
2. Ford F-series
In the year 1948, a Ford Bonus was introduced for the first time. The first models were rickety, but the quality of the trucks improved over the years. The Ford F 150 sold particularly well in the last six decades. This type makes Ford the king of pick-ups. The demand for trucks shows no reduction. It is very likely that a new variant of the Ford F series will be produced in the recent future.
1. Toyota Corolla
In the year 1966, the Toyota Corolla appeared for the first time. Immediately the car became extremely popular. In 1974 it was the best-selling car in the world. More than 40 million Toyota Corolla cars have been sold worldwide. The 11th generation Toyota Corolla was released in 2013. In 2015 it underwent a facelift. Just like the previous generations of Toyota Corolla, the car is very popular and is therefore sold very well. The Toyota Corolla is a compact, reliable car.
