Toyota appears poised to shatter a statistical milestone next year and claim 10% of the US market, 42 years after selling its first car there, Automotive News said. Toyota and Lexus combined achieved 10.2% of US light-vehicle sales in November, lifting Toyota Motor Sales USA's share for the year to 9.2%. If that rate holds this month, 2000 will mark the first time Toyota Motor passes the 9% mark.
