Toyota hits the number 1 for Christmas

Whilst automotive sales in Europe may be catastrophic the rest of the world,

and especially the US, is flying high with 2012 global sales for cars and trucks

set to hit 80 million for the first time. Also flying high is Toyota which is set to

regain the title of the world’s biggest automaker, leaving GM and VW to battle it

out for the runner’s up spot. Meanwhile VW are already in fighting talk and

have said they will be the global sales leader by 2018 and GM continues its

recovery as it heads for a twelfth straight quarter of profits since its 2009

government bailout.
