There is going to be a new car company topping the best selling list.
Volkswagen recently passed Toyota as the world’s largest car manufacturer, selling 10.31 million units in 2016. Their Japanese rivals, by comparison sold 10.175 million units.
General Motors will announce it’s sales figures next week. Should they fall short, it will mean the German company will sit atop the list for the first time.
It will be great news for Volkswagen, who ran into a bit of trouble with cheating on emissions tests not so long ago. They can thank large sales on China for much of the success.
Toyota does not seem to worried about losing the top spot. Their sales were up 0.2% from the previous year and have insisted that the number one priority is producing quality cars for their customers. They still hold the largest market share in New Zealand, with 18.3%.
