General Motors Corp. said Wednesday that it sold 9.09 million cars and trucks worldwide in 2006, down 0.9 percent from 9.17 million one year earlier.

Toyota Motor Corp. has said that it expects final totals to show it sold 9.04 million vehicles in 2006. The Japanese automaker is forecasting 2007 production of 9.42 million vehicles in 2007, which would put it on track to outsell GM worldwide this year.

GM said a preliminary count of its non-U.S. sales last year totaled 4.97 million vehicles, or 55 percent of the worldwide total. That is up about 7 percent from 2005. G.M. earlier reported U.S. sales of 4.12 million in 2006, down about 9 percent from the previous year.
