Volkswagen Is The Largest AutoMaker For 1st Half of 2016

German Automaker, Volkswagen has recovered from the 'Dieselgate' scandal and beat Toyota to bag the title for the Largest Automaker for the first Half of 2016, according to USA Today.

Volkswagen sold 5.12 million vehicles through June, while Toyota said Thursday that it had sold 4.99 million vehicles during that same period.

Toyota vehicle sales were down 0.6%, compared to the same period a year earlier. VW sales were up 1.5%. 

This is the second year Volkswagen is achieving such feat. In 2015, Volkswagen did the very same thing only to lose the full-year title to Toyota after Volkswagen's emissions scandal dented sales in the fourth quarter.

Hoping they can retain the title by the end of the year.
