US Car Production By Make : 2000-09

The Sonata assembled in Alabama, USA from 2005

Times were tough for US car production. The big economic downturn late in the decade sent volumes plummeting. Out of that sudden shift in 2009, Toyota became the largest car maker in the US, passing GM while Honda moved into third at the expense of Ford. Nissan and Hyundai were now ahead of Chrysler.

The three US car companies accounted for just over a third of total production in 2009, less than GM alone in 1999. The Big Three were still the major players in the truck and SUV arena though.

The figures are in thousands so three zeros need to be added.
