Now who’d know India would even be in the list? yes it is, India houses many great motor vehicle manufacturing companies like, Tata, Mahindra, Maruti, and it is definitely guessable that India should be there in the list with its total population being the second top in the entire world.

With the recent launch of Tata Nano, this number too is bound to be changed. India stands at 9th position in the list of top 10 motor vehicle manufacturing countries.
