By "car" we are referring to passenger cars, which are defined as motor vehicles with at least four wheels, used for the transport of passengers, and comprising no more than eight seats in addition to the driver's seat. Cars (or automobiles) make up approximately 74% of the total motor vehicle annual production in the world.

The remaining 26%, not included in this statistics, is made up of light commercial vehicles and heavy trucks (motor vehicles with at least four wheels, used for the carriage of goods), buses, coaches, and minibusses (comprising more than eight seats in addition to the driver's seat)

By "production" we are following the convention used by national trade organizations and referring to completely built vehicles (CBU) as opposed to the assembly of completely knocked down (CKD) or semi-knocked down (SKD) sets when vehicle parts originate in another country.
