The hard struggle between the Toyota Group and the Volkswagen Group for being the largest manufacturer of cars in the world comes from afar. Gone are the years in which General Motors was the King of the manufacturers and the Japanese and German group sigh for this post. Now the Detroit giant complies with the third or fourth world manufacturer and not die in the attempt after the serious crisis that happened and that nearly killed.
During this year, the Volkswagen Group has now passed to the Toyota Group as largest manufacturer of cars in the world. The difference is really nimia, but we know that even for one car already this title is won. However, there is that be very prudent and see how just this fight, since, as we have said many times, by sell more not is wins more and there can be the problem.
According to Automotive News Europe global group Toyota sales grew 0.4 percent during the first nine months of the year. This growth means sales of 7.53 million new vehicles between all brands of the group. However, according to the same medium, in the same period of the year the Volkswagen Group has increased its world-wide by 2.4 percent sales registering 7,61 million cars.
As we can see the difference is minimal, However the Group Volkswagen has an as very powerful in his hand. This letter is the Chinese market and the excellent results that are getting on it. Thanks to Chinese consumers group is maintaining the kind both in sales and income and that makes it be able to endure the stakes of the Dieselgate.
If dissected them sales of this market can see that by each Toyota (or some model of his group) enrolled is sold three Volkswagen (or model of the marks of his group). Therefore the Group Nippon still will have that grow in that market as the others, as the American them has controlled.
We will have to wait and see how it ends the year and if there is anything that changes this trend.
