Ninety years later, the Japanese carmaker Toyota has snatched the title of the largest car manufacturer in the United States from the American company General Motors or GM.

Detroit-based General Motors had snatched the title of world’s largest carmaker from Ford since its inception in 1931, but a severe shortage of semiconductor chips in the days of the Corona epidemic severely affected GM Motors.

Toyota sold 2.332 million vehicles in the United States in 2021, compared to 2.218 million sold by General Motors. GM sales fell 13 percent. Toyota has sold 10% more cars than GM.

In 2020, GM sold a total of 2.55 million vehicles, followed by Toyota with 2.11 million and Ford Motor Company with 3.04 million.

Toyota, on the other hand, has decided not to celebrate the honor of selling the most cars.

Toyota USA Senior Vice President Jack Holles said in a cautious statement that he is grateful to his customers, but that reaching number one is never the company’s priority.
