Toyota Unveils 2013 Production, Sales Estimates

Today, Toyota (NYSE: TM  )  announced its sales and production estimates for 2013. All told, Toyota anticipates that it will produce about 9.94 million cars worldwide, which is up slightly from 2012's estimated total. It is forecasting sales of around 9.91 million for a 2% year-over-year increase.

The great bulk of production will be of the company's flagship brand. Around 8.7 million Toyotas are to be produced next year. This is a touch below 2012's forecast total. Sales of the brand are expected to exceed the production figure and come in at 8.9 million, a 3% gain over this year's number.

The company did not provide the rationale or any data on which it based its assumptions.
