Winners: Great Wall takes the prize here -- even though it is only China's tenth-largest producer -- with Tata in hot pursuit. Among established manufacturers, only VW, Hyundai, and Kia make the top tier. GM outpoints Ford again because of its success in China.
Losers: Mercedes-Benz can hardly prosper in such an environment, so Daimler finishes well down the list. With the help of Nissan, Renault outpoints Peugeot-Citroen and Fiat (Chrysler doesn't get a mention) in this and all other scenarios. And Tesla ranks dead last since the combination of low fuel prices and bare bones products hardly plays well with its rocket-science image.
The Toyota comeback rolls on as the Japanese automaker takes aim at Detroit.
