Wow, that was quick and much earlier than expected. Volkswagen wanted to be the no. 1 carmaker and overtaking Toyota by 2018, but latest research shows that they have already achieved that with 4.4 million cars sold so far in 2009 compared to Toyota’s 4 milion and GM’s 3.6 million. Congrats to Wolfsburg! Great news.
