TikTok's popularity is growing globally as the social media app provides a platform that users tune into for an average of 52 minutes per day. Between the dog and cat videos, response side-by-sides, and quick recipe ideas, there's plenty of car content.

A new study by Uswitch.com reveals the top car companies on TikTok based on the number of total views that automakers' videos received. BMW claims to the top spot with 17.6 billion views as of April 2021. The German car company has embraced the platform, developing their channel early and creating their own TikTok challenges to engage enthusiasts.

BMW's rival Mercedes-Benz comes in second in the rankings with 17.6 billion views while Italian supercar company Lamborghini ranks third with 8.3 billion views. The most popular vehicles on the Mercedes feed are the S-Class, G-Class, and CLA-Class. Lamborghini was the first supercar automaker to embrace the platform.

Lamborghini is the only one of the three most popular brands to have models in the top 20 with the Huracán coming in seventh, Aventador slotting at ninth and Urus ranking 14th.
