General Motors is set to become the world’s largest automaker yet again, reclaiming the title from Toyota, whose operations have been hit hard by a production slowdown brought on by Japan’s natural disasters.

With only a 30,000 vehicle gap in sales between the two companies at the end of 2010, GM should easily reclaim the lead, as 30,000 cars essentially amounts to a day’s worth of global sales. Meanwhile, Toyota claims that normal production schedules won’t return until November, proving a crucial blow to the automaker’s overall foothold in the marketplace.
