posted on April 27, 2016

The Toyota Motor Corp. group ranked top in global vehicle sales in fiscal 2015, overtaking Volkswagen AG of Germany, data released Tuesday by the Japanese automaker showed.

In the year that ended in March, global sales of the Toyota group, including Daihatsu Motor Co. and Hino Motors Ltd., fell 0.7 percent from the previous year to 10,094,000 units.

Sales by Volkswagen dropped 2.3 percent to 9,951,200 units on a preliminary basis, dampened by the discovery that it cheated on diesel engine emission tests.
