(Newser) – Sayonara, Suzuki: The Japanese automaker announced today that it will cease US sales of its cars after its current inventory runs out. The company, which has been selling vehicles in the States since 1985, filed for bankruptcy protection in California as part of the move, reports Bloomberg. Suzuki, which maintained a .2% marketshare, follows Saab and Isuzu out of the US. The company says it will now focus on emerging markets in India and elsewhere in Asia, while continuing to sell motorcycles, ATVs, and boat motors in America. (Read more Suzuki stories.)
