Car/CV Production Japan By Make: 2012


After an understandably very poor 2011, Japanese car production bounced back, to the tune of a 19% increase in 2012. Now that the Japanese Yen is more realistically valued, it is a big problem for car making in the land of the rising sun. However these totals are quite strong so it is profitability that is obviously hurting more.

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.

Now for commercial vehicle numbers. Again another good increase, but not as much as cars, and certainly lower than historical levels. The Gr Total at the bottom of the data is both car and CV production combined. Thanks to JAMA for the data. I wonder why other organisations cannot be as quick and reliable when it comes to production numbers.
