After almost a century of leading the U.S. auto sales, General Motors was outsold by Toyota Motor Corp in 2021.

The Japanese automaker sold 2.332 million vehicles in the United States in 2021, compared with GM’s 2.218 million, they announced on Tuesday.

General Motors‘ U.S. sales were down 13 percent in 2021 and dipped 40 percent during the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Toyota had a ten-percent increase over the year.

In all of 2020, GM’s U.S. sales totaled 2.55 million, as compared to Toyota’s 2.11 million and Ford Motor Co.’s 2.04 million.

2021 was a year marked by a shortage of semiconductors used in the production of vehicles. This forced automakers to concentrate on their top-performing models.

GM has been the top vehicle seller within the United States since 1931, which was the year it overtook Ford, according to figures from Automotive News.
