Toyota recaptures the spot of being the No 1 the Car Maker in the world crown from General Motors

It has been a grand outcome for Toyota being crowned the world’s number 1 car maker, in terms of massive sales volumes in 2012. Toyota was able to sell an impressive 9.7 million cars in the year 2012, against 9.29 million units that arch rival General Motors managed during the same period. The 2012 Camry was a big boon for the Japanese car maker which generated roaring profits for Toyota to efficiently glide to the top spot. The reputed and esteemed company ranks third in terms of attractive sales volumes even out beating the supremely successful German car maker Volkswagen, which also managed to sell massive sale outputs of 9.1 million cars across the globe in 2012. Hence this clearly depicts close and tough competition between the rivals.

Toyota Corolla Altis LE India launch

While Toyota has been a marvellous product in many overseas countries, India has not witnessed a very strong Toyota market, even though Toyota cars are extremely popular and demanding in India. The Indian car market is on a sales decline period which is the major reason for the lower sales volumes. While Toyota will introduce a stunning range of new and inventive cars this year, including the most awaited 2014 Corolla in international markets, the car maker plans to slow down on launches in India until 2015. Cars like the Etios and Liva will be redesigned while other cars in Toyota’s Indian range will also receive cosmetic changes with facelifts.. However, the assembly line of new cars is likely to happen only in 2015.

The 2014 Corolla will be a grand boon for the company’s sale figures. Toyota’s aim to maintain the market stability would be to withhold its sales crown in 2013 as well. The Corolla was showcased at the prestigious 2013 Detroit Motor Show, through the Furia concept. The Furia Concept will deliver a basic theme of the design language the 2014 Corolla. Similarly with the case of Camry, the Corolla has recorded the highest global sales. The new 2014 Corolla, which is an all new-next generation model, is expected to be a much sharper looking car than the current model, with unique designs and incredible architecture.
