Top 10 Most Produced Cars In History

There are hundreds of vehicles sold on the global market, but only a few have had the distinction of being among the most produced vehicles in the world. Have a look at this list of cars, all of which left an indelible impact on the automotive world in regard to production numbers. Nearly all of the vehicles on this list remain in production, so expect the following numbers to continue rising for some time.

10. Chevrolet Impala: 14 million

After its start in 1958 as a flashy two-door coupe, the Impala has undergone plenty of fundamental changes. Today, it serves as GM’s evergreen four-door sedan, delivering fuel efficiency, practicality and value.
9. Volkswagen Passat: 15.5 million

The Passat is the third Volkswagen on the list to have the honor of breaking 15 million in total production. Today’s Passat has grown larger and more affordable to satisfy the demands of the U.S. market.
8. Ford Model T: 16.5 million

No list would be complete without the inclusion of Ford’s first mass-produced car. Developing the modern assembly line made it possible for Henry Ford to sell the Model T in great quantities for less than $1,000, putting millions of Americans on wheels.
7. Honda Accord: 17.5 million

Racking up countless awards from Car and Driver, Consumer Reports and J.D. Power and Associates, the Honda Accord remains a paragon of reliability and dependability and the gold standard of mid-size vehicles in the U.S.
6. Honda Civic: 18.5 million

Economical and affordable, the Honda Civic has earned its place as the sixth most produced car in history. Ever since its humble beginnings in 1972, the Civic has had a reputation for fuel efficiency and reliability.
5. Ford Escort: 20 million

The European variant of the Ford Escort remains #5 on the list of most produced cars despite being discontinued in 2000. Unlike the U.S. Ford Escort, its European counterpart enjoyed a long and storied history, starting in 1967.
