Due to the cannibalistic nature of the automotive industry, I have redesigned this poll to be about contemporary auto groups for consumer vehicles. Anyone who voted must vote again (Use the 'Delete my vote' option).
Given doing the poll from a purely business point of view is a very dry, grey area and makes the poll lose much of the meaning, so I have used my discretion in some areas. The following points have already been taken into consideration:
- Fiat's stake in Chrysler
- Daimler AG's stake in Nissan-Renault
- Ford owns Mazda, but I have included Mazda separately anyway for the brand's strength
- Motorbikes and/or heavy trucks brands have been ignored (e.g. Hero Honda, Hayabusa, Scania etc)
I will happily take any other points I have neglected into consideration if you post them here.
I know, some people just like to drive whatever and not give a hoot, but hey, some people do have a favorite brand.
PS: No bashing.
Also, Only the brands I recognize in the list. If there are more popular brands I did not know about, just tell me
