When asked about the automobile model built in the largest numbers per year, many Europeans would give a particular type of lower middle class car as their choice. From a global point of view the trucks with a cargo surface designated as a "pickup" in America lead the production statistics. This type of vehicle from the 1950s became familiar in Europe from a television series with a collie.
