Japan's Average fleet fuel economy had already reached 46 mpg in 2002

Why are Honda and Toyota taking over an increasing percentage of the US auto market?

According to a 2004 Report from the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, Japan's fuel economy average for its new fleet of vehicles in 2002 had already reached 46 mpg.

So it should be no big surprise to Americans, that as fuel efficiency becomes a major factor in the choice of new auto purchases, Toyota and Honda are going to be taking over increasing percentages of the US auto sales market, where the comparison average fuel economy for the new fleet of US-made vehicles in 2002 was a mere 24 mpg.
