Some cars are just so good they just keep selling and selling over the decades. Here we’ll look at the best selling cars of all time, including American made, European made and Japanese made.
American Made Cars
American car manufacturers build cars to last, and the top 10 are no exception. Starting at the bottom of the list, the Buick LeSabre sold 6 million models between 1959 and 2005. Just above the LeSabre is the Ford Taurus, which sold even more cars in a shorter period of time: 7.4 million from 1986 to today.
It’s been a rocky road for the Big 3 automakers as they’ve struggled for survival and relevance in a down economy. In the biggest auto industry shakeup in 30 years, existing companies have been re-organized, torn apart, or sold off, resulting a complete reshaping of the auto industry landscape. Whether through government handouts or good old American ingenuity and entrepreneurship, GM, Ford, and Chrysler are revitalized and ready to deliver the exciting and environmentally friendly automobiles that consumers crave. But unlike the 70s, when American automotive manufacturers faced a threat from the Far East, today that threat comes not only from that part of the world but from newer more nimble competitors such as Tesla, right here in their own backyard. Our infographic breaks it down.
