TOYOTA remains the top automaker in global vehicle sales after the first quarter in 2015. It reports 2,52 million vehicles being sold.

The automaker has been the world’s top-selling for the past three years.

Figures released on Thursday (23/04) show the Volkswagen Group retaining its number-two spot with 2,49 million vehicles sold from January to March 2015.

Volkswagen edged out American automaker General Motors, which reported global sales of 2,4 million vehicles.

Toyota’s sales were down 2% since 2014, as vehicle sales in Japan lagged. Volkswagen’s sales were up 1,8% while GM’s increased by 1,9%.

The race among the three automakers is intense, playing out worldwide, including relatively new markets like India and China. – Wheels24
