Volkswagen issues see Toyota claim top car sales spot in 2015.
Both brands however are likely to report mammoth sales totals above ten million vehicles in 2015.
At the end of November, Toyota reported year to date sales of 9.21 million vehicles, with Volkswagen’s 11-month total at 9.10 million. Toyota regained the lead from Volkswagen in the global car sales race after a slightly sluggish start to the year for the Japanese group.

But Toyota officials aren’t overly optimistic about their fortunes, and the car industry in general, in 2016. Reports today say those Toyota bosses are warning that global auto sales could stagnate next year, while some analysts are even fearing a modest dip.
