VW Group leads Toyota despite Dieselgate


Despite its diesel-rigging scandal, the VW Group sales have so far not taken a beating. While sales of its mass-market VW brand have suffered, this has been more than offset by strong demand for luxury Audi and Porsche models as well as its Czech built brand Skoda.


Although the emissions scandal has tarnished its reputation and triggered a multitude of lawsuits, VW has maintained sales in part by offering incentives to buyers in the United States and other markets while it repositions its business by investing in electric cars and on-demand transport services. General Motors, the largest U.S. automaker is right behind 2nd place Toyota Motor. GM with its 3rd in global sales rankings, with 6-month sales of 4.76 million vehicles is down 1.2% from a year earlier.
