Toyota back to World No.1

The first century of the automobile was quite simple: Ford was world leader until the mid-1920s and then General Motors took over for the next 75 years.

Now it is like a music chart. Toyota got to No.1 in 2008, only to lose it again with the recall issue in the USA and then the Japanese earthquake and tsunami in 2011. However, it has surpassed both GM and VW in the first half of this year.
