Toyota plans 10.4 million vehicles global group sales in 2009

Toyota announced Friday a global sales target for 2009 of about 10.4 million vehicles, a number that would put the Japanese automaker ahead of a record hit by world leader General Motors 30 years ago.
Analysts say Toyota Motor Corp. is likely on track to beat General Motors Corp. as the world's biggest automaker in global vehicle sales, as well as production, this year _ a title Detroit-based GM has held for 76 years.
Toyota gave the ambitious sales plan in a document handed out as President Katsuaki Watanabe outlined the company's growth strategy for coming years.
