Toyota leads GM in global sales for first time.

April 24, 2007

Consumers snapped up Toyota Motor Corp. vehicles in the first quarter to catapult the Japanese company past General Motors Corp. on a global basis for the first time. Toyota sold 2.35 million vehicles compared to 2.26 million for GM to become the world’s largest automaker in the period, according to Market Watch.

Among the Toyotas sold were the Sienna minivan, Tundra pickup truck and Sequoia sport-utility vehicle—all make in Princeton. Camry sedans made at the Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. plant in Lafayette began rolling off the assembly line last week, thus were not included in the figures.
