Despite its infamous recall debacle, Toyota has largely managed to rebuild its image. The Japanese company takes the No 1 spot on this year’s list, beating out German automakers Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW. Toyota posted double-digit gains in April 2014, delivering 13.3 percent more vehicles than in the same month last year.
General Motors (No 67 on Global 2000), one of Detroit’s Big Three automakers, takes the sixth spot — staying the same from last year’s rank.
