Has GM really claimed the title of world's largest automaker? It depends on how you count. Volkswagen (VLKAY.PK) argues it was the top-seller last year if sales of affiliates are included, and its figures don't yet include majority-owned truck makers MAN and Scania. Some analysts dispute GM's total, which includes vehicles sold in China by Wuling, a partner in which GM doesn’t have a controlling stake.
