Toyota is rated the number one auto firm in 2013, and has out beaten Volkswagen and General Motors, two fierce competitors. The Chief Executive officer of Toyota, Akio Toyoda on acquiring the number one spot stated that the company is still on the process of facing revivals in short intervals. Reputed American players like General Motors have been on the top selling game for decades, and Volkswagen has also gained a major foothold in global sale segment and the firm is investing majorly in attractive auto segments of China and US.

Toyoda is the grandson of the founder of Toyota, and his team is now working on a more emotional design for the new Camry. The new design theme is called waku doki which in Japan means heart racing characteristics.

Toyota has always been on top of its sale game, in 2012, the company’s sales were higher than General Motors by 460,000 pieces, and this year the difference in sales has reduced to around 270,000 pieces.

The past few years have been challenging for auto firms all over the globe, Toyota since inception has been a leader in auto segment. For decades the company has enjoyed admirable sales and market shares, but the adverse impacts of recession, reduction in economic value of yen and natural calamities have had a toll on the company. Toyota despite being under the most aggressive challenges has still managed to acquire top sale positions.
