The top-selling car in the United State for the past 11 years, has been a Toyota Camry, the company proudly reported after noting it has sold 10 million copies of the sedan. Toyota claims that one in every five of its sales is a Camry, resulting in 20 percent of the vehicle volume sold by Toyota.

“We couldn’t be more excited about Camry’s 10 millionth sale in the U.S.,” said Bob Carter, senior vice president of automotive operations of Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.  “With the support of so many loyal customers, Camry has truly become part of the country’s fiber.  For seven generations, Toyota dealers have also been instrumental in getting Americans behind the wheel of a Camry. Camry is definitely helping Toyota Go Places.”

Toyota’s first generation Camry was introduced to the U.S. market in 1983, selling 52,651 vehicles. Three decades later, 773 of those Camrys are still in operation.

Camry began production in Georgetown, Ky. in May of 1988. It added production of the Camry hybrid in October 2006.

J.D. Power and Associates underscored Camry’s value by ranking it number one in the midsize passenger car segment in its 2013 Initial Quality Study (IQS).

According to a NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) study, the foreign nameplate Camry is the most American made car with 75 percent of its content sourced domestically.
