At CarSalesBase.com we’re constantly working at expanding our database with car sales figures for Europe, the US and China. This means adding more brands and models or expanding the time period for which we publish the data. As per writing, we offer sales data on nearly 2.800 car brands and model across the three markets, thanks to recent additions to our database. Not only is China always a great source for adding new brands and models that are being launched every month, but thanks to a generous reader we’ve had access to detailed US car sales figures from as far back as the 1980s. As a result, we’ve been adding brands and models from that era to our database as well. Here’s a brief overview of some recent additions for those who are interested in them:
We’ve also added sales figures for the DeLorean sports car, which only translates to three calendar years of sales, from 1981 to 1983 before the unfortunate project came to a premature halt.
In terms of newly launched Chinese models, the most notable are the Jetta brand under Volkswagen, which launched its Jetta VA3 sedan (a rebadged Chinese-market VW Jetta) and Jetta VS5 crossover (a rebadged Seat Ateca not previously sold in China), the Chevrolet Trailblazer launched in China before the US, the new generation Baojun models RS-5 crossover, RM-5 MPV and RC-6 sedan with striking design and upmarket interiors. Also worth mentioning is the reborn Hongqi brand, which was in the past exclusively for members of the CP, now launched for the public as a domestic premium brand with the H5 and H7 sedans, the HS5 and HS7 crossovers and the E-HS3 electric crossover, accounting for no less than 50% of FAW sales in September, from nearly zero in 2017.
In the upcoming months we’ll continue to expand the online database with more additional datapoints and models, and we’ll keep you up-to-date.
