Toyota automakers maintained their  No.1 position second year in a row by being the 'No.1 automaker'  speeding past Volkswagen and General automakers. 

In 2013, Toyota sold 9.98 million units across the globe while General motors and Volkswagen managed to sell out 9.71 million and around 9.7 million units. 

For 2014, company targets to break past 10 million units sold with a goal of 10.32 million by the end of the year as per reports in Automative news

Last year, Toyota's tally rose 2% to top the 9.71 million sold by General Motors. Volkswagen AG gave a rounded figure of 9.7 million units, but the German carmaker won't give detailed results until March 13. 

In 2012, the Japanese carmaker maintained with sales of 9.75 million, beating Global Motor's global sales by 451,000 units. 

Last year, GM narrowed the gap because of 7% sales increases in Asia and North America as per reports in Economic times.
