List of car groups: Which car manufacturer belongs to which group

Posted: Posted:

Where are the parent companies of each car brand

I took a look at the tables of the world's major automakers, which groups they belong to. The simple figure was very easy to see ^^

There are some manufacturers such as McLaren and Aston Martin that are missing, but most of them are covered.

What is written here is the status of the automobile manufacturer group as of July 2021 (persistent, but not all).

Although each automobile manufacturer has a different parent company from the time of its establishment, even if the nationality of the parent company is different, each brand still has the original country in which it was established as a brand image. , Many manufacturers actually have their head offices and factories in their original countries.

→ For example, Jaguar is currently owned by an Indian company, but Jaguar is still recognized as a British car.

Then I would like to take a look ~.
