We all know social media is a great way to market products and all brands want to take advantage of these sharing platforms.

The world of cars is no different and Instagram is one platform where the fast and furious models appear regularly in posts on a daily basis.

The cool guys at OSV, one of the leading vehicle suppliers in the UK, has come up with an interesting infographic detailing just how many hashtag appearances automakers and their top cars are appearing in.

The info also includes the number of posts each brand is mentioned, and also which vehicle is the most popular at the time this infographic was created.

BMW tops the list, followed by Honda and Ford.

1. #BMW

No surprises really at the top, BMW is one brand that stretches across demographics, satisfying young as well as old. With nearly 28 million mentions on Instagram, it’s way ahead of the competition. Top of the pile is #bmw5 which appears on 1.3 million posts.

2. #Honda
Another Japanese brand but you might be surprised to see it near the top of the list. With 21.8 million mentions that could be down to good marketing by the company itself as well as the popularity of the brand. Most popular car? The #hondacivic gets over 373 000 mentions.

3. #Ford

No surprise to see Ford in the top three as the hashtag count takes a big leap with over 16 million mentions across Instagram. 1.3 million hashtags mention #fordmustang which is most definitely down to its sleek, sporty design.
