Toyota global sales up 21.3 pct on-year

Japanese automaker Toyota yesterday said global sales surged 21.3 percent year-on-year in April, despite millions of safety recalls worldwide that have left it facing a series of lawsuits in the U.S.
The Toyota group, which includes brands Daihatsu and Hino trucks, said it sold 671,921 vehicles in April, up from 554,034 a year earlier, spokesman Paul Nolasco said. The figure was lower than March sales of 876,126, however.
The world's largest automaker said global production jumped 53.8 percent to 667,495 units compared to a year ago, when the industry was in the grip of the financial crisis.
Toyota continues to see its sales rise despite having pulled around 10 million vehicles worldwide since late last year for safety issues.
