(ANSA) – TOKYO, Jan. 13 – Toyota has confirmed that it tops the ranking of the world’s best-selling car brand in 2021, beating Volkswagen for the second year in a row, despite the critical importance of the Covid epidemic that has caused Delays in production in Southeast Asian countries. In the year just ended, the Japanese company — which includes the Daihatsu and Hino Motors brands — sold 9.56 million vehicles, versus the German competitor’s 8.8 million, down 4.5%, compared to the semiconductor shortage for the auto sector. Instead, Toyota cushioned the impact compared to other manufacturers, gradually reducing production between the summer and fall months, but confirmed acceleration of enrollments in key key markets, including China and the United States.
