Toyota Reclaims World's Top Selling Automaker Title From GM
January 28, 2013 11:41 AM IST
The result was in line with the company's December forecast, and put it back in the No. 1 spot, which it lost in 2011 when it was hit by a wave of negative publicity after a recall crisis in the United States, and a disrupted supply chain following an earthquake in Japan and floods in Thailand.
Toyota held the global sales crown from 2008 through 2010, but fell to third place in 2011 behind GM and Volkswagen.
