Toyota recently put two years of record-level recalls behind it only to face yet another crisis. The automaker now has to cope with a slowdown in production due to massive factory damage caused by March's devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
While sales in North America, Europe and Japan declined during 2010, Toyota sales picked up in emerging car markets, including Asia, Central and South America and Africa. Emerging markets ended up being strong enough to carry the company, which sold over 7 million units in 2010, an increase of 71,000 from the previous year. --S.D.
