According to autoguide.com...
I wonder how many of you would be able to guess them all. As of September 2013:
10. Chevrolet Impala: Over the course of its life, the Impala has sold 14 million units since its introduction as the Bel Air Impala in 1958.
9. Volkswagen Passat: Despite a shorter lifespan than the Impala, the Passat has moved 15.5 million units since its debut in 1973.
8. Ford Model T: The Model T helped set the benchmark for mass-production cars. During its lifespan (which began in 1908), the Model T sold a hugely impressive 16.5 million units, making up a significant portion of all cars on American roads at the time.
7. Honda Accord: The Accord garnered a strong reputation for reliability. It was originially released as a compact, but has morphed into the ubiquitous sedan we see today. It has sold 17.5 million units since 1976 and is still going strong.
6. Honda Civic: Just ahead of the Accord is its sibling, the Civic. It debuted in 1973 as a subcompact and has since moved 18.5 million units in the last 40 years.
5. Ford Escort: Escort found far more fans in Europe than it did in the U.S. It’s lifespan lasted from 1968 until 2000, during which Ford sold 18 million of the cars worldwide.
4. Volkswagen Beetle: With one of the longest lifespans of any vehicle (that’s still in production), the original Beetle was released in 1938 and has since sold 23.5 million units. A significant redesign occured in the 1990s, which saw putting a modern spin on the beloved classic.
3. Volkswagen Golf: The Volkswagen Golf, with its 27.5 million cars sold since 1974, has proven to be a more popular model than the Beetle, offering a more straightforward look that a wider range of people are likely to find attractive.
2. Ford F-Series: The second bestselling vehicle of all time hasn’t been showing signs of slowing, either. Ford’s F-Series trucks have sat at the top of the best selling list each month, usually by a margin of twofold over the second place finisher. All told, the F-Series has 35 million sold since its debut in 1948.
1. Toyota Corolla: 1966 saw the birth of the Corolla, the world’s bestselling car at the time that this list was made. In the nearly 50 years since, the Corolla has moved roughly 37.5 million units, and the company has just recently unleashed a refreshed, redesigned model, while the older model was still breaking into the the top-selling cars monthly on a regular basis.
