Its shares nudged up 0.11% in pre-market deals to stand at US$9.44 despite the group being embroiled in a recall controversy, which is still headlining globally.
The historic auto group is recalling 2mln pickup trucks - the famous F-150 models - in the US and Canada over fire and smoke concerns relating to seat belt parts.
The manufacturer, based in Detroit, said some components could generate excessive sparks when used, which could lead to a fire risk.
Looking to Asia, shares of Toyota (NYSE:TM) fell 1.1% in Tokyo after the car maker said it would halt its production in Japan in the wake of the earthquake in Hokkaido, according to a Seeking Alpha report.
The company's factory in Tomakomai, which produces its auto parts, still has no power, and the fall-out from the Hokkaido earthquake could reportedly hurt Toyota's supply chain for months.
Elsewhere, entrepreneur and self-styled future gazer Elon Musk was also back in the frame and courting controversy as usual.
The 47-year-old took a puff on a joint during a live podcast with comedian Joe Rogan, which was shown live on the internet.
"I’m not a regular smoker of weed,” the Tesla (NASDAQ:TESLA) boss said. The joint contained tobacco mixed with marijuana, which is legal in California.
Musk also revealed the challenges of living with a brain that has enabled him to build and run multiple tech companies simultaneously.
