Lotus Car Sales By Nation : 2015


The data for Lotus sales is not easy to get. In fact the totals here are based on production, rather than sales. Some major nations are estimates (E), and the 'others' figure of 12.3% of sales is larger than I would like. It would be nice if Lotus were more open with data.

Global sports car sales have fallen over the years for a reason I cannot explain. For Lotus however, sales are currently growing and profit looks like a reality after years of loss making.
