Toyota tops car sales

TOKYO: Toyota Motor Corp sold more cars than Volkswagen AG for the fifth consecutive month in November, putting the Japanese firm on track to remain world’s top-selling automaker in 2015 as sales at the German maker suffer following a diesel emissions scandal. Toyota on Friday said group vehicle sales totalled 9.21 million in the January to November period, more than the 9.10 million cars delivered by Volkswagen during the same period. Toyota has continuously outsold Volkswagen on a year-to-date basis since July. Earlier this month, Volkswagen said its Volkswagen brand sales fell 2.2 per cent year-on-year in November.
