Toyota leads sales for second year in a row
Toyota remained the world's top-selling automaker for a second year in a row in 2013 and set an ambitious target to sell more than 10 million vehicles this year. That would mark a milestone as no automaker has ever topped annual worldwide sales of 10 million. Toyota says it sold a record 9.98 million vehicles worldwide last year, up 2 percent from the previous year.
