The automotive industry has experienced some incredible growth over the past couple of years.
Around the world, there are dozens of brands selling everything from tiny economy cars to million-dollar exotics for the world's plutocracy. But the industry is highly consolidated — a handful of major corporations own nearly all of the world's major car brands.
This graphic does not include every car company and every brand. Instead, it's meant to be a visual representation of the amount of influence and market power held by a handful of very powerful companies. As a result, well-known names such as McLaren, Mazda, Subaru, and Tesla have not been included because they do not belong to a large car making conglomerate. Ferrari does not appear because it's been spun off from FCA and floated on the New York Stock Exchange.
