The Rest Car/Vehicle Production By Nation : 2016-17


I've already covered West Europe, East Europe, the Americas and Asia. What's left is here. It's growing quite quickly but overall it is a very small part of the global enterprise that is vehicle manufacturing.

Cars: A major part of the figures below is Iran. However, it is vulnerable to US pressure not to trade with the country so I assume the numbers will drop substantially for 2018. Australia is also going to drop but in addition, disappear as it ends its car production. Morocco and Algeria look in a good position though. Egypt has been sliding for some time.

Back in the year 2000, Australia was the biggest car manufacturing nation listed under 'The Rest' with 36% of the total but now has all but gone. It wasn't competitive with high wage costs and an unfavourable exchange rate so couldn't survive without protection or subsidies.

SA x2 27,440 1.2% 28,660 1.4%

Vehicles: Not much changes here despite 440,000 units added. South Africa's commercial vehicle manufacturing attracts a high double count figure as local content cannot be that high.
