  • Dozens of Japanese vehicles are built at plants in the US.
  • The factories are in the southern US and have been in operation in some cases for decades.
  • They employ thousands of Americans.


While touring Asia earlier this year, President Donald Trump made some confusing statements about American and Japanese cars.

Trump argued that more American vehicles should be sold in Japan, where historically almost no American cars have been on the market. But he also seemed to misunderstand that Japanese automakers have been building vehicles in the US for decades, employing thousands of Americans in the process.

The fracas made us wonder if folks know just how many Japanese cars are actually made in the US. It's a lot. We added it up:
