Move over Volkswagen, Toyota has just been named the world's best-selling automaker.

Toyota sold 9.5 million vehicles worldwide in 2020 - compared to about 9.3 million vehicles delivered last year by Volkswagen.

Throughout 2020, the pandemic wiped out sales and disrupted supply chains across the auto industry.
