Here's a few more graphs on where the auto market is right now.
Sales are up from the crisis year of 2009, but still below 2008.
This graph shows market share by brand home country (as opposed to country of manufacture). The Japanese share fell in April and May, probably because of the effects of the tsunami on supply chains in Japan.
In this graph the decline of the Japanese brands can be seen again. Despite the impact of the recession on the industry, the same five brands still dominate sales.
