The global auto market suffered from unprecedented challenges in 2022. Many automakers struggled, and their goals were far from reach. Toyota Motor Corp. (TYO:7203) sold 10.4830 million vehicles--the most of any automaker for the third year in a row--but its sales fell 0.1 percent year-on-year. Volkswagen Group's sales hit their lowest level in almost 11 years, down 7 percent to about 8.3 million vehicles; Hyundai Motor Co. (KRX:005380) ranked third globally with about 6.85 million vehicles sold.

The Toyota Corolla was the world's best-selling model in 2022, with 1.12 million vehicles sold worldwide.

Toyota remained the biggest winner in the car market, with four models on the Top 10 list. The Corolla reclaimed the title of the world's best-selling car from the RAV4, selling 1,120,000 units and being the only car on the list to break the million mark. Since its birth in 1964, it has gone through 12 iterations offering a variety of power options, including naturally aspirated, turbocharged, and hybrid, with cumulative sales of more than 50 million units worldwide, covering more than 150 countries and regions.

The Toyota RAV4 came in second with 869,955 units sold, remaining the world's best-selling SUV. The reason for its popularity is its excellent reliability and fuel economy, as well as its excellent product strengths: especially the engine and overall are very reliable. On the other hand, its global sales layout is visible in nearly 150 countries and regions with Toyota sales networks.
