Since not all the figures are available for the Calender year 2010, starredreviews has compiled the list from the calender year 2009 which gives a good picture of what is in store in future.
With the figures being so close, the ranking could change and by the end of this year it is quite possible that GM may be back at the top of the heap, regaining the number one position after a few years being dethroned by Toyota,which in turn have had their share of problems,from recalls to an earthquake in Japan. At the same time one must remember the Hyundai Kia is doing very well and when you combine the figures of Renault and Nissan,which are sister companies despite their so-called independent structures, their ranking could change the world order too.You may notice that Tata is ranked 19th in world. That could have changed despite the fact the Tata numbers are up singnificantly in 2010,as the Chinese carmakers are worth looking out for. Chana and Beijing are already ahead of Tata and a whole host of others like Dongfeng,FAW,Chery,etc ,are snapping at the heel. So, 2010 could change drastically.
