Report: Toyota outsells everybody, VW outsells GM

This is all very exciting, but it falls behind the predictions Toyota made in 2007 about global sales reaching 10.4 million in 2009. This may be due to the global economic downturn, unintended acceleration, and the tsunami that devastated parts of Japan in 2011. Moving forward, as they say, Volkswagen outsold GM by about 10,000 cars with a total number of 9.72 million, not as good as the 9.98 million posted by Toyota, but a significant increase for the German company, nonetheless.

Speculate among yourselves regarding what is coming in the next year; VW will be trying harder to tap into the US market with a variety of smaller players like the Porsche Macan and will maintain their current midsize and smaller fighters such as the Chevy Cruze-fighting Jetta Diesel. 9.98 million cars may sound like quite a few, but it is only about 10% of the worldwide market, much of which is the rapidly growing Chinese share, composed of cars not offered in the United States, but may be offered in not too many years.
