Which Automakers Own Which Car Brands?

In the Family Way

At times the auto industry can feel overwhelming, with all the different products, brands and stories to keep straight. There’s always something going on in this business, from breaking news to vehicle reviews.

And for non-automotive-journalists, which are most of you out there, it can get pretty confusing at times, especially when it comes to keeping the various product lines straight. In an effort to help you understand which parent company owns a particular marque here’s a breakdown of various automotive brands sold around the world. We hope it helps you keep things straight.

Please note, we did not try to list every single automaker; we merely focused on the major players in this industry and ones that have a strong presence in North America. We apologize in advance is you were dying to learn about Hindustan, Lada or Proton but you’ll have to look elsewhere.
