Car Exports by Country 2024

For overall car exports, the country of China exports more vehicles than any other country, with exports reaching 3.2 million vehicles in 2022, as reported by the Chinese General Administration of Customs. Meanwhile, Germany came in second place in 2022 for total vehicle exports, with 2.6 million cars exported in 2022.

One of the reasons China overtook Germany as the world’s leading exporter of vehicles was the country’s increase in the production of electric cars and other new energy vehicles (NEVs), which soared by 90 percent from 2021 to 2022. SAIC Motor, China’s largest automaker, and American automaker Tesla were responsible for most of the NEV exports in China.

For 2023, China again led the world in the number of vehicles exported, reaching 1.07 million during the first quarter of 2023. Japan was in second place, with exports reaching 954,185, as reported by the BBC. These figures and those from other countries will help overall worldwide car exports increase year over year from 2022 to 2023, but not by a significant amount.

Some countries export more large vehicles capable of holding more than ten passengers than they do cars that carry fewer than ten passengers. For example, the top five countries with motor cars and motor vehicle exports for smaller vehicles are Germany, Japan, the United States, South Korea, and Mexico.

On the other hand, the five countries that export the most large vehicles capable of holding more than ten passengers are China, Japan, the United States, Turkey, and Poland. The placements also change dramatically when special-purpose motor vehicles, tractors, and car parts are considered.

Another metric for measuring car exports is value, and China drops to sixth place when the overall monetary value of its exports is measured. The countries with the most valuable total car exports are Germany, Japan, the United States, South Korea, and Mexico.
