According to the 2022 data of the Chinese Automobile Manufacturers Association, 3 million 110 thousand vehicles were shipped from China to foreign countries.

China, which managed to increase its shipment by 54 percent compared to the previous year, rose to the second position in the world in automobile exports.

Germany, which fell to the third place in the list, increased its exports by 10 percent compared to 2021, but 2 million 610 thousand remained in sales.

Japan is at the top of the ranking. Having shipped 3 million 820 thousand vehicles to the foreign market in 2021, Japan sent more than 3 million 200 thousand vehicles abroad in the 11 months of 2022.
