However, the lower weight of China in February penalized Volkswagen global market share, helping Toyota booming share at the record 11.7%, due to sharply drop in the next.

In was significant to say Volkswagen was penalized, while its share grew from 7.6% in the full year 2012 to 8.1% in January and to 9.1% in February.
