These 22 countries account for 75 percent of the global sales market and tell some interesting stories about new car sales trends.

Unsurprisingly, the Ford F-Series pickup tops the charts in the US, as it has for the past 41 years, and in Canada.

Europe remains a market focused on small cars, with the Peugeot 208 and Toyota Yaris each taking the top spot in two countries. The only best-selling electric car on the list is the Tesla Model Y, which accounted for 10 percent of total new car sales in Norway.
