Was GM Really the World's Largest Automaker in 2011?

General Motors reported selling 9.03 million vehicles in 2011, yet according to some industry analysts, this figure is inflated.

GM's sales figures include 1.2 cars sold under the Wuling brand in China. Because GM is only a minority shareholder in WuLing, some argue GM only sold 7.8 million cars in 2011, which would make GM smaller than VW, Nissan/Renault, and Toyota.

WHICH COUNTRIES BUY THE MOST CARS?

White China has become the world’s Largest automotive market in terms of sales volume, the U.S. market still leads the world in terms of total sales revenue.
