Toyota Outsells General Motors for First Half of 2008
It’s now halftime for the 2008 game of automotive sales. In figures released today, Toyota has sold about 4.8 million car worldwide this year, and GM is trailing by 300,000 cars. GM says that sales in the U.S. have brought down its total numbers, but it has gained sales in Latin America, Asia and Europe. General Motors trailed Toyota’s sales for most of 2007, but it finished strong. In the end, GM only beat Toyota by a few thousand vehicles last year to retain the title as the world’s largest automaker. With the U.S. market not showing any signs of immediate recovery, is this the year we crown a new king?
