KEY: N = data do not exist; U = data are not available.

a Does not include minivans, pickups, and sport utility vehicles.

b Formerly Czechoslovakia.

c Includes all trucks and buses. Light trucks, such as pickups, sport utility vehicles, and minivans are included under commercial vehicles.

NOTES

Prior to 2000, the country of manufacture was recognized as the producing country. To conform with current OICA (International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers) practices, starting in 2000, the country of final assembly was recognized as the producing country. This explains the sudden change in trends across some countries from 1999 to 2000.

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.
