GM, VW best positioned in emerging markets, study says

General Motors Co. and Volkswagen AG are best positioned in the largest and fastest-growing emerging markets at a time when auto sales in those countries could grow more than 40 percent by 2014, a study said.

There were an estimated 19 million car sales on a combined basis in China, Brazil, India and Russia in 2009, accounting for 30 percent of global auto sales, estimated at 62 million units last year, the Boston Consulting Group study said.
