With the limited numbers of cars sold in a such a populated nation, clearly a car is still a luxury few can afford. The figures below are those of brands that manufacture in the country. Imported vehicles would be of limited number anyway but it would be nice if someone would put a list together of all cars sold here.
Toyota has over half the market and Toyota being such a dominant brand in Asia is common. VMC assembles mainly Nissan but also Chinese brands in small numbers. Mercedes disappeared off the chart in 2012. Vietnam could do more to show what cars sell there.
The first three columns show 2010 to 2012 ranking, the second column in from the right is increase or decrease, and the extreme right shows market share for the major brands.
