Toyota Overtakes GM as Bestselling Auto Maker in U.S. – The Wall Street Journal


Toyota Motor Corp. has for the first time overtaken General Motors Co. as the U.S.’s top-selling car company by annual sales, a change prompted largely by a global computer-chip shortage that dealt an uneven blow to the car business.

The Japanese auto maker, which for decades has worked to expand its presence in the U.S., outsold GM by roughly 114,000 vehicles in 2021. Toyota’s total U.S. sales of 2.3 million rose about 10% compared with 2020, the company said Tuesday.
