The top 40 in Japan has some interesting aspects:

1) Toyota dominates not by filling all the top spots but having so many models, which are all popular.

2) Toyota owned Daihatsu have a few very strong sellers only, with only three models listed - but all above 8th.

3) Subaru do well to get three in the top 40, although none in the top 20.

4) Mitsubishi misses out completely.

5) Most telling, they are all Japanese. A bit narrow minded don't you think?
