STILL NUMBER ONE: The Toyota group moved more than 8.4 million units in 2010.

Despite suffering a dismal 2010 in which it was plagued by recalls and questions concerning the quality and safety of its products, Toyota emerged from the year as the world’s largest carmaker.

A recovery in vehicle demand since the global recession outweighed the automaker's dramatic decline in US sales.

Toyota was the biggest global automaker for the third year in a row, assuming its sales are combined with Lexus and affiliates Daihatsu and Hino; 8.42-million, an increase of eight percent.

General Motors was ranked second with worldwide sales at 8.39-million - up 12 percent.  

Volkwagen was third-biggest; its global deliveries increased by 14 percent to 7.14 vehicles in 2010.
