Cars Simplified: Everything Automotive Explained

List of Auto Manufacturers

You may not know where to start when it comes to figuring out what company makes what car in what country, but there is a simple hiarchy to it. Starting with Earth, of course, you narrow it down to continent, then country, then it's either a group of manufacturers (which can either be a universal brand like GM, or one company that owns others, like BMW) or a single manufacturer. Each of these has a line-up of cars they own entirely; joint-venture vehicles are quite rare.



On this page, we will sort by country, and then by company grouping. Under that will be a list of companies within that group.

North America



Europe

Japan
