Volkswagen: World’s biggest car manufacturer 2016

World’s biggest & Trusted car manufacturer of 2016

Despite its emission scandal, recall of several cars under the group and a heavy loss, Volkswagen beat Toyota to emerge as the world’s biggest car manufacturer in 2016 producing 10.31 million units as opposed to Toyota’s 10.18 million.

Volkswagen’s sales grew at a global rate of 3.8% which was mainly led by its sales in China which increased by more than 12%. However, it cannot be called the most profitable car manufacturer due to its big losses.

New cars from Volkswagen are anticipated to be launched in India in 2017:

  • Volkswagen Up – Expected to be priced around Rs.3.5 lakhs, this is a hatchback which will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Alto
