While this is from 4 years ago, I assume it still holds for the most part. At some point Tesla will start to appear on the map.

You assume incorrectly. Toyota just passed Ford in the United States. GM is considerably bigger here, but since it's divided up into 4 brands I suppose that's out.

I'm a little surprised that Honda only has one small country: The Bahamas.

Not surprise for me... many countries cannot live off just with "small cars". Many countries need truck and pick up of different sizes and Honda products have NONE. I see Honda products line up kind of at the opposite end compare to GM and Ford. Honda products are mostly smaller car/CUV and GM/Ford are mainly large pick up/SUV and Toyota are doing EVERYTHING. This is why American brands and Honda only appear in a few countries. It doesn't mean they are not selling, it just mean they (GM/Ford/Honda) never able be the "most popular".

I like seeing the specific breakdowns especially,
by segment:

Yes winning a whole country sounds great, but population wise winning a country like Gambia is like winning Orlando. Still, it is interesting to see the regional breakdowns of who dominates what. Is Honda really only #1 in the Bahamas? Honestly damn. Population wise that's like saying you've won Wichita.

Ford is still the number 1 brand in the US in 2021.

TMC (Toyota+Lexus) passed FMC (Ford +Lincoln) mostly due to Lexus outselling Lincoln 3 to 1.

In comparison to the Toyota, Ford, and GM, Honda is a tiny company (in the car world).

Wonder how that 'trucks only' strategy is going to pan out for them....
Probably not great with the incoming administration LOL

People like to exaggerate how small Honda it actually is. There are not many automaker in the world are bigger than Honda. For an automaker (Honda) that without a professional truck division, IT IS NOT SMALL.
