Toyota Set To Remain World’s Largest Automaker

Volkswagen delivered 10.3 million vehicles worldwide in 2016, the company said today in an emailed statement. With that, it most likely missed its hallowed target of becoming World’s Largest Automaker by the thinnest of hairs. VW’s pet enemy Toyota, world’s number one automaker since Japan recovered from the Tohoku earthquake, will announce its 2016 data by the end of the month. However, the company told me on December 15, 2016 that it plans to produce 10.366 million units in 2016, and Toyota rarely misses these estimates, especially not  when it knows how many cars it will crank out in the next two weeks.
