Despite the economic downturn in North America, the future looks bright in BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China). So bright, in fact, that there's been an almighty shift. According to Reuters, Toyota has upped global sales stats by 2.2 percent. The increase further cements their number one slot worldwide. That's because GM's global sales have contracted by three percent, trailing Toyota by 278k units. [Note: GM "gooses" its figures by including minority-held joint ventures.] Volkswagen has grown by an astonishing 5.8 percent. As Ford's sales have shrunk by six percent, they've surrendered third largest automaker props to VeeDub. Further commendation goes to Hyundai for increasing sales worldwide by a whopping 10.8 percent, scooping fifth place in the global ranking.
