Leading Asian car brands in the U.S., based on sales

In December 2019, Toyota continues to be the leading Asian car brand in the United States: Japan’s largest carmaker sold approximately 172,000 units under its namesake brand. That said, the Toyota Motor Corporation’s year-to-date sales decreased by around 6.3 percent, compared with the same period one year earlier.

Asian brands continue to be the most successful group among the non-domestic manufacturers. This trend is further underpinned by the fact that Asian motor vehicle manufacturers are also the producers of some of the most popular car models in the United States. The best-selling Asian car models in the U.S. include the Toyota Camry, the Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla. Furthermore, the Nissan Leaf is the fourth best-selling all-electric car model in the United States. The United States is the world’s second-largest market for passenger vehicles. Mid-size cars are proving increasingly popular among U.S. customers, although cross utility vehicles (CUVs) remain in high demand.
