I am looking for some data on the (average) number of seats per car. I know one could assume such number to be 5, but I would like to have some statistics to support such an assumption.

  • What about vans and trucks that have bench seats? How do you count those? – Bulrush Dec 30 '15 at 20:18
  • I'm behind the same question. I'm trying to figure outs how many car's seats are in the world. I found there are 1.2 billion vehicles (all categories including trucks, buses and off-road), 95% of them light duty vehicles. – javier garcia Sep 6 '17 at 12:40

I am not sure if you will find a statistics for this, but I assume it will be easy to do it by yourself. There are a few datasets out there that contains this info.

The Comprehensive Cars (CompCars) dataset link

Each car model is labeled with five attributes, including maximum speed, displacement, number of doors, number of seats, and type of car.

World Data Atlas link

This one includes several datasets related with cars and production. You could try some of them to see if they have the information you want.
