GM is Decrowned, Vehicle Sales By Year

Auto Sales by Year

Looks like Toyota took the number one spot in US auto sales, surprised by how weak Nissan has become. As outlined by Axios:

GM and Ford may be making progress on electric vehicles, but Toyota became the best-selling automaker in the U.S. in 2021, usurping GM for the first time with strong sales of hybrid vehicles and SUVs.

GM held the title since the Great Depression but has been losing market share for decades.

Be smart: GM’s slide is partly by design, Nathan notes. The automaker has discontinued a slew of passenger car models to focus on more-profitable SUVs and pickups.
