A World Map of the Most-Googled Car Brands!
Apparently the people working in Top Speed have so much free time on their hands, they decided to see which parts of the world google which car brand or model.
And to their surprise the Peoples Republic of China apparently is most curious about the American made Tesla.
During the time frame of April 2014 up to March 2015 Google saved the searches for vehicle brands and these guys decided to dig thru it. Now in this period Japanese Google user would be expected to show curiosity about their own brands like Honda, Toyota, Subaru etc. but Google says NEIN, they actually showed the biggest interest in the German manufacturer BMW.
Now we have to admit that searching a vehicle and owning one are totally different things and that explains how not everybody in China is driving a Tesla and there are a rather small number of BMW vehicles in Japan.
Instead of Japan, Toyota apparently is the most sought after manufacturer in the keyboards of Africa although according to the employees in Top Speed is connected to the brands famous reliability and the economic situation on the continent that forces people to search for the more affordable means of transportation. Mercedes Benz and BMW are also among the vehicles Googled on in Africa but we must not forget that one of the biggest manufacturers of BMW automobiles with the steering wheel located on the right-side (wrong side actually) of the vehicle is located in South Africa.
