  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: This World Map Shows the Most-Googled Car Brands By Country

The good folks at Top Speed have cobbled together a rather interesting map that shows the most-searched car brands across the world. China loves Tesla, it seems!

The specific data used was taken from Google searches over a 12-month period from April 2014 to March 2015. That’s why it doesn’t line up precisely with the 2014 Google Trends report which, for example, lists Ford as the top search for the United States rather than Toyota.

Other interesting tidbits from the data include China’s apparent obsession with Tesla, and Japan’s BMW love. On whole, however, the data seems to indicate a massive interest in Toyota. That said, “most searched” doesn’t translate to “most sold” in all cases, as Top Speed notes. China’d be straight up full of Teslas if that were true, and the country is not.

-

Toyota’s dominance in searches extends to Africa, which Top Speed speculates is due to the brand’s affordable fare. Mercedes-Benz makes their mark in the northwest of the continent, however, and there’s a decent share of BMW fans present.

As always, it’s important to remember that a different set of data or methodology could potentially skew all of this differently. What was searched for heavily last September may not even make a blip this month. Additionally, Google searches don’t always have to do the desire to purchase a car, as “do Teslas explode” would add another bean to the same counter as “I love Tesla cars why can’t everyone just drive them.”
