It was eventually going to happen if recent yearly trends continued, and according to a short post in LeftLaneNews, Toyota Motor Company has officially passed General Motors as the world’s top automaker. In the first 3 months of 2007, Toyota has sold more cars worldwide than GM. (2.348 million vs. 2.26 million) The article goes on to suggest that this shows a “trend that isn’t likely to change any time soon. Toyota has been gainng ground for some time, and analysts have expected 2007 or 2008 would be the year the year it finally overtakes GM … so I suppose it’s really not a surprise?
