Strangely this report on The Hindu (from today) claims the opposite!

Toyota Motor stayed at the top in global vehicle sales in 2014, selling 10.23 million vehicles, beating Volkswagen and General Motors.

Volkswagen AG of Germany sold 10.14 million vehicles in 2014 while the Detroit-based General Motors was third at 9.92 million vehicles, a company record .

April 2016

Volkswagen takes global sales lead from shutdown-hit Toyota.

Volkswagen (VW) eclipsed Toyota as the world's top-selling carmaker in the first quarter as the Japanese rival grappled with a series of production stoppages.

Toyota's worldwide sales declined 2.3 percent in the January-March period to 2.46 million cars. VW, struggling to overcome an emissions scandal, reported earlier this month a 0.8 percent increase to 2.51 million vehicles in group deliveries.

General Motors' quarterly deliveries also dropped, 2.5 percent to 2.36 million cars due to a slump in Latin America.

What scandal? No matter, Volkswagen World's Largest Automaker In First 6 Months Of 2016.
Quote:
At halftime 2016, Volkswagen AG, scandal-rocked as it may be, still leads Toyota in the race for World’s Largest Automaker. With all three global giants having reported its global deliveries, Volkswagen is some 80,000 units ahead of Toyota. General Motors is 360,000 units behind Volkswagen, and it definitely has long ceased being a factor in the race for the top spot.

However, Toyota typically speeds up its global deliveries in the second half of the year, would VW retain its lead and become the world largest auto Manufacturer of 2016?

VW to top Toyota in global car sales in 2016.

Toyota was number-one for the 4 years to 2015.

Quote:
Officials with the German carmaker say the group sold more than 10.3 million vehicles in 2016. That's up nearly 4 percent from the previous year, when sales dropped on revelations the company was cheating on emissions tests.

Toyota officials estimate they sold about 10.1 million vehicles during the year.

Renault-Nissan and Mitsubishi Alliance dethrones VW as World’s largest automaker.

Quote:
Enter Mitsubishi Motors, which became a part of Renault-Nissan following an acquisition completed toward the end of 2016. The period from January to June 2017 made it clear that the alliance was right to welcome Mitsubishi to its ranks. The three managed to sell 5,268,078 vehicles in the first half of 2017, thus dethroning Volkswagen (5,155,600) and Toyota (5,129,000). On fourth place, General Motors sold roughly 4.7 million vehicles in the period.
