Toyota's global sales for the first nine months of the year reached 7.41 million vehicles, little changed from the previous year but outpacing General Motors to keep its lead as the world's top-selling automaker.

Detroit-based GM said earlier this month that its global sales for January through September totaled 7.25 million vehicles, up 4.6 percent from a year earlier.

Toyota's vehicle sales for the first three quarters inched up 0.1 percent.

Germany's Volkswagen AG sold just over 7 million vehicles worldwide during the nine months, making it a close third. Volkswagen's global sales increased almost 5 percent during that period from last year.
