Toyota world’s top selling car maker for 2nd year

– Toyota remains the top automaker in global vehicle sales for the second year in a row, beating U.S. rival General Motors by some 270,000 vehicles in 2013.

Toyota Motor Corp. says Thursday it sold 9.98 million vehicles worldwide last year, up 2 percent from the previous year, when it bounced back from an earthquake that devastated northeastern Japan in 2011.

Toyota plans to sell 10.32 million vehicles globally in 2014.

No automaker has ever topped global annual sales of 10 million.

General Motors Co. sold 9.71 million cars and trucks worldwide last year, outselling Volkswagen AG of Germany at 9.5 million.

Toyota recaptured the global sales crown in 2012 from GM, which had been the top-selling carmaker for more than seven decades until being surpassed by Toyota in 2008.
