Toyota has regained the number one spot for worldwide sales.

Last year drivers bought 9.75 million of its vehicles.

As a result the Japanese carmaker overtook its American and German rivals - General Motors and Volkswagen.

Toyota had fallen into third position, behind them, in 2011, having held the top spot from 2008 to 2010.
