Last Thursday, Ford issued a press release touting the fact that it sold more vehicles in Europe during the month of March than any other automaker. Pretty impressive if you ask us, especially when you consider the fact that Europe is the home market for the ever-growing Volkswagen brand. Thing is, the Blue Oval's press release may only be half true. Automotive News reports that Ford did in fact outsell VW in the 27 countries that make up the European Union. Include non-EU countries like Switzer
The global auto sales downturn has been as painful as it's been swift, but a report from Yomiuri shows that the worst of times may be over. The Japanese news agency (via Automotive News) reports that Toyota has raised its vehicle production forecast upwards by 3% to 6.5 million units. That's still a far cry from Toyota's amazing 2008, yet the positive adjustment is still worth over 300,000 units of additional production.
