    Wow ! GM crushes Toyota + Volkswagen in China

    In the race to be No. 1 in the world's No. 1 auto market, General Motors is edging out its biggest rival, Volkswagen.

    On Friday, VW reported first-half sales of 1.54 million vehicles in China. Though that's an 18 percent increase year-over-year, VW did not pass General Motors, which sold 1.57 new vehicles over the same time period.

    GM and VW have long led the Chinese market, mainly because they were among the first of the global automakers to aggressively set-up production in China when it began welcoming foreign investment in the mid 1990s.

    As a result, the race to hold first place in the country has become a proxy for the battle the companies are waging to be the global leader in auto sales. Last year, General Motors was tops, selling more than 9 million vehicles, while Volkswagen was third behind Toyota.

      I can admit when I am wrong. Last week I said there were only 2 morons on this board that use sales as the end all be all in auto sales. Profits don't matter to people like you.....So that makes three fools on this board that think sales is the deciding factor of a better car company.

        Cobra : There are only three fools on this board , Scammy Sammy, Blow Mountain , and you . The article I re-posted has ZERO to do with sales being the deciding factor of a better car company . It simply states that GM is currently beating VW which in turn is beating TM in total China sales . No where does it state that any of those three is a better car company . You are like Obama , you make up lies to suit your posts . By the way , how's that 99 unpaid Scamry working out for you ?
