Top Selling Automakers of 2015 Announced
For the fourth year in a row, Toyota outsold all other automakers, moving over 10 million units. Their total sales figures surpassed their forecasted totals, and they were the only automaker to eclipse 10 million vehicles sold.
Volkswagen and GM rounded out the list of 2015’s top three sellers. Volkswagen enjoyed strong sales in the first half of 2015 before being derailed by their emissions scandal, dampening their total sales numbers. Volkswagen sold 9.93 million vehicles in 2015, while GM sold 9.8 million units.
Toyota forecasts another strong year in 2016, with projections expecting total sales of over 10 million vehicles again this year. GM and Volkswagen will be trying to push towards the 10 million mark, with GM attempting to regain the top spot for the first time since 2011.
