GM reclaims top spot on US auto sales chart

General Motors has reclaimed its title as America's favorite automaker, leapfrogging Toyota Motor on the sales chart.

GM says it sold more than 2.2 million new vehicles last year. That's a three percent jump from a year earlier. Toyota Motor North America saw its sale drop nine percent to around 2.1 million.

GM occupied the top spot in the US market for many years, but was overtaken by Toyota in 2021.

It shrugged off the supply chain issues that plagued other automakers last year. GM actually saw an improvement in their access to semiconductors.
