Toyota remains the undisputed largest car manufacturer in the world. The Japanese sold around 10.5 million vehicles worldwide in 2021, had less to suffer from the semiconductor crisis than VW. Toyota hits the nerve of customers better than the Germans in many markets.
The Toyota Motor Corporation not only sold more than ten million vehicles worldwide, but also had a sales increase of 10.1 percent compared to the previous year despite pandemic and semiconductor problems. Noteworthy: While many manufacturers – like VW – want to get rid of their petrol and diesel customers and move to buy electric cars, Toyota currently does not have a single pure electrical car in the program – once you can refrain from the electrical fuel cell cars. Instead, the Japanese still rely entirely on petrol and hybrid models.So far, the Toyota’s success has not been harmful. While the sales figures on the Japanese home market decreased slightly, the foreign markets were clearly on the upswing: 8.39 million units correspond to an increase of 13.8 percent. All four group brands – Toyota, Lexus, Daihatsu and commercial vehicle subsidiary Hino – were able to increase worldwide. With around 9.6 million units and an increase of 10.6 percent.

Toyota leaves VW behind
The Volkswagen Group had to suffer significantly more with its various brands such as VW, Audi, Porsche, Skoda or Bentley. Despite the full order books, there was a noticeable decline in global deliveries compared to the previous year by 4.5 percent to 8.9 million vehicles.

"2021 was very challenging due to the global shortage of semiconductors, but we have consistently implemented our clear future course towards New Auto," said Christian Dahlheim, Head of Volkswagen Sales, "the doubling of our fully electric volume and the high demand for all of our vehicles clearly show that we are on the right track. We will build on this in the current year and continue to drive our transformation.“The distance to the electropionier Tesla, which does not sell any combustion engines, is still large. 936.000 sales of Tesla Model 3, S, Y and X are currently a tenth of the Toyota sales.

VW only relies on electric cars in many countries
After all, Volkswagen was able to deliver fully electric vehicles to almost 453 compared to the previous year.Double 000 vehicles, which corresponds to a share of 5.1 percent. This means that the Volkswagen Group is a market leader in Europe for fully electric vehicles and achieves the second largest market share in the important market USA with around 7.5 percent.
In China, 92.700 vehicles delivered more than four times as many electric cars as in 2020 and the sales of plug-in hybrids rose by 61 percent to 309.500 vehicles. The world’s best -selling fully electric group models were the VW ID.4 (119.600 vehicles) before the ID.3 (75.500 vehicles) and the Audi e-tron with 49.200 models sold. In the other places Skoda Enyaq, VW e-up and Porsche Taycan with all more than 40 each.000 approvals sold.

Toyotas drive strategy
In contrast to the Volkswagen Group, Toyota uses much more on combustion engines and hybrid vehicles and only gradually gets into the electrical business. The global success was also in Europe, because with a paragraph of just over a million vehicles sold, there was an increase of 8.4 percent compared to that. The Europe -wide market share climbed 0.4 points to the record of 6.4 percent. In parallel to sales, the global production figures have also increased: Around 10.08 million vehicles manufactured in 2021 mean an increase of 9.4 percent compared to the previous year. The Japanese now have a number of electric models in the pipeline, if only because, at least according to current plans in many EU countries, no other cars may be allowed in the 2030s. But neither in the USA nor in China, the world’s most important car markets, it looks as if you follow the European example and only want to drive electrically from the upcoming decade. Toyota- much more than VW- also has a good standing in developing and emerging countries. No electric SUVs are in demand there, but normal cars, transports, pickups and minibuses.
