Toyota still world's top car maker

AOL Money Staff

Toyota has held on to its status as the world's top-selling car maker in the first quarter of this year, although the three-way race with General Motors and Volkswagen is proving tight as its sales fall in China and Japan.

Toyota said it sold 2.43 million vehicles during the January-March period, outpacing US firm GM at 2.36 million vehicles and Volkswagen of Germany at 2.27 million.
