The number one carmaker , Toyota Motors confirmed its world group sales fell below 8 M in 2011. That makes it lose the number one spot in the global carmakers league.
The total sales were 7.95 million units worldwide, down to 6%. Since 2008 , the Japanese company had been the world's biggest automaker and sold 8.42 million vehicles in 2010.
