VW is world’s second-best-selling automaker, GM falls to third

VW is world’s second-best-selling automaker, GM falls to third

January 31, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Car Buying , GM , Toyota , Volkswagen Every year when we start talking about which automaker is the biggest in the world, there always seems to be at least a little bit of controversy. For 2013, Toyota handily took the top spot with 9.98 million sales, but it’s the runner up spot between General Motors and Volkswagen that is starting to create a stir. Based on our earlier report , GM’s 9.71 million vehicles put it in second place ahead of VW’s 9.5-million-vehicle effort. Now, The Detroit News is reporting that VW is claiming a tally of 9.73 million sales, including figures from MAN and Scania – heavy-duty truck divisions under the VW AG family. The article points out that Toyota’s sales figure includes its Hino line of trucks, but these might still be considered light-duty vehicles while MAN and Scania build tractor trailers.

Despite slow sales, no new Scion models in near-term pipeline [w/poll]

Despite slow sales, no new Scion models in near-term pipeline [w/poll]

September 10, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Filed under: Car Buying , Budget , Scion , Toyota , Earnings/Financials According to a top Toyota executive, the Japanese automaker will not be introducing any fresh Scion models in the near future, Reuters reports. As of August, Scion sales for this year were down 1.6 percent from 2012 and accounted for only 0.3 percent of Toyota’s overall US sales. And last month, Toyota Motor Sales USA Senior Vice President Bob Carter informed the 1,000 dealers who carry Scion that they can drop the brand without penalty. However, never fear – Carter has assured that, while nothing new is coming for at least six months, the company is still very committed to the quirky Scion brand. Toyota launched Scion, which targets the youth market, in 2003, and sales peaked in 2006. The brand currently has five models, with the 2013 best-sellers being the FR-S sports coupe followed by the tC sedan and xB hatchback. What do you think about Toyota’s decision to hold off on introducing new or refreshed Scion models? Are they heading in the right direction, or does this spell doom for the funky Gen Y brand?
