Rest Of World Vehicle Production By Nation : 2014-15


Having considered the regions Europe, Asia and The Americas, there was only the rest to consider. They are from the Middle East (plus Central Asia), Africa and one Pacific entrant. They generally exist due to import duties making car assembly viable. South Africa, Australia and Morocco export too.

A couple are so small I find it hard to believe they are not just assembled from kits that don't have sufficient local content to be counted. Others like Vietnam I thought would have merited inclusion. However, this is the data supplied by OICA. When cars are made just for the local market, they fluctuate according to the economy, without export markets to moderate such unevenness.

Double Counts: At the bottom of the chart, you will notice double counts. This happens when a car has sizable contributions from two sources and it comes down to which nation should count it as their manufactured vehicle. Sometimes both nations are considered the producer and it becomes a double count. In this case, double counts are for South Africa, representing 5.4% of total production.
