These are each automaker's best-selling vehicles in 2021
We all have a pretty good idea of what the most popular vehicles in the country are - trucks and SUVs. But, what are the most popular from each brand? This list showcases which mass market models are most popular for each automaker.
This list uses self-reported automaker sales numbers to determine the most popular models. Super luxury cars sold by the likes of Ferrari, Rolls-Royce, and Aston Martin aren't tallied by model, rather a total number. So, they're not included on this list either.
Sales figures for many automakers have not yet been released for 2021. The first comprehensive figures will be revealed at the end of the first quarter. Some companies still do monthly sales figure releases and those are reflected by the list below.
See the full list of 2020's best-selling vehicles by automaker here.
