Toyota Stays on Top in Auto Sales

Toyota Motor Corp kept its lead over rivals General Motors Co and Volkswagen AG this year, January-September global sales figures showed, as the Japanese carmaker closes in on a record annual profit.

Toyota's groupwide sales totalled around 7.412 million vehicles, up 0.1 percent from the same period a year ago, the company said on Monday, as strong sales in the United States offset slowdowns in Thailand and China.
