Tata Nano debuts with 1 millon requests; watch out Toyota Corolla

If Tata Motors had the ability to swiftly build the 1 million reservations the Indian automaker has for the Nano, it would easily be the world's largest-selling car in 2009. And it would also quickly advance on the all-time, best-selling cars list.

As the following lists detail, the best-selling vehicle in history is the Toyota Corolla, with more than 32 million units sold. The 50th best-selling car in history is the Peugeot 405 with 3.5 million units sold. The best-selling vehicle in 2008 was the Ford F-Series truck with 515,513 units sold. It's also the second best-selling vehicle of all-time.

If the Tata Nano continues at its current initial popularity, how high could it advance on the all-time list?
