Toyota Motor is down four places in this year’s Global 500 rankings, despite having beaten its own guidance for 2018. Revenues were up 2.8%, but net profits were down 25%, due to declining sales across Japan, North America, and Asia—a reflection of wider industry woes associated with consumer tastes shifting away from traditional passenger vehicles. Looking to the future, Toyota invested $500 in Uber in 2018, money earmarked for the ride hailing company’s self-driving tech—a bid to help Japan’s biggest automaker move into the era of autonomous vehicles.
