Buy a Hummer and Support America

GM vs Toyota
At least that’s what Hummer’s parent company General Motors is suggesting when it released a comparison of “GM & Toyota investments in America and its People.” Toyota has rolled out a new campaign showing how much they’re supporting the American people and economy – and GM is countering Toyota’s ads with some numbers of their own. Here are some of the figures:

Vehicle Imports into the United States

    Of the vehicles Toyota sold in the U.S. during 2006, 46.4% were imported

    Toyota imports increased by 319,000 vehicles to nearly 1.2 million in 2006 over 2005

    Of the vehicles GM sold in the U.S. during 2006, only 2.5% were imported.

U.S. Purchases for Materials and Supplies

    GM: $83 billion

    Toyota: $21 billion

American Jobs

    In 2005, nearly 1 million Americans earned their living building and selling GM vehicles

    Toyota’s U.S operations supported fewer the 400,000 jobs

U.S. Capital Investments

    Between 2003 and 2005, GM invested 13.1 billion in the United States

    It took 25 years for Toyota’s investment in the United States to reach 13.3 billion.

U.S. Manufacturing Facilities

    GM: 65

    Toyota: 10
