TOKYO (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T: Quote) said it expected group-wide global vehicle sales to stay flat in 2016 at 10.11 million vehicles, likely keeping it ahead of rivals Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE: Quote) and General Motors Co (GM.N: Quote) as the world's top-selling automaker.

Global sales at the group, which includes mini-vehicle maker Daihatsu Motor Co 7262.T and truck maker Hino Motors Ltd (7205.T: Quote), would likely total 10.10 million vehicles this year, it said in a statement on Wednesday.

Group-wide production is likely to rise about 1 percent to 10.20 million vehicles, Toyota said.
