Japan's automakers, fully restored from the effects of a devastating tsunami and other disasters, are making up for lost time in North America.

Led by Toyota Motor Corp., Nissan Motor Co. and Honda Motor Co., Japanese manufacturers boosted their U.S. sales faster than most of their rivals after replenishing their inventories, expanding their share of the U.S. light vehicle market to 37.9 percent from 34.9 percent.

They ramped up their North American output by 17 percent to a record 15.2 million vehicles in 2012, according to Kohei Takahashi, a Tokyo-based auto analyst at J.P. Morgan.
