Foreign vehicle sales lead domestic sales for the first time
For the first time in history, U.S. domestic brands have been outsold by
foreign companies, a milestone that came a few months sooner than most
Detroit's automakers had a record low market share of 48.1 percent,
while foreign-based car markers sold just over half of the cars and
trucks bought in July, according to Autodata Corp. The figures don't
include foreign-made nameplates owned by domestic carmakers.
