Why is Lexus grouped into the “United States” country category when it is a division of Toyota?

Lexus originated in the United States despite being a division of Toyota. Similar to Acura for Honda and Infinity for Nissan. Essentially all of them were luxury brands introduced into the American market to compete with other European luxury brands.
