I am looking for info on the main types of cars and trucks used by the German military in WW I. Production figures would also be of help. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

Can't speak for passenger cars, but some rough figures for lorries are available.

1.029 existing lorries and 294 trailers were bought by the military transport depots (IKD); 3.478 existing lorries and 825 trailers were bought by the (deputy) army corps. Most of these puchases happened in 1914 and early 1915. The number of lorries captured in Belgium and France and reused is not known.

lorry manufacture 1914-1918:

5t - 816

4t - 11.030

3t - 22.230

2t - 2.764

1 and 1.5t - 1.274

trailer - 6.494

ambulances - 4.004

military postal service - 156

special vehicles - 1.434

 

The most prominent brands were:

Hansa-Lloyd - 10.600 vehicles built

Benz - 6.150

Daimler-Marienfelde - 3.680

Horch - 1.790

Stoewer - 1.760

Deutz - 1.350

Vomag - 1.000

MAN - 990

Adler - 900

James . . . Send me your e-mail address and I'll forward an extensive list of German cars and trucks manufactured up to 1919.  As I'm more interested in the latter, I've not reformetted the former as well as I could have, but it's all there.
