Default Despite emission scandal, VW is the world's no.1 car maker (H1 2016)

Volkswagen has become the No.1 car-maker for the first six months of 2016 selling 5.116 million vehicles worldwide. Kudos to them for the strong showing despite the major problems it has faced!
Skoda as well as their luxury brands Audi & Porsche reported strong sales offsetting their mass market slide in the wake of their issues.
Toyota slid down to number 2 position for the same period selling 4.992 million vehicles.
General Motors is in third position.

This is their performance and position after the discovery of probably the largest emission scandal in the world. There were speculations that VAG might be forced to file for bankruptcy. But so far, they are all happy doing business around the world. This shows that the average customer isn't concerned about the company's actions if he/she is happy with the end product.
