Automotive Family Tree Spreadsheet. Click here to learn more.
Welcome to the “Family Tree” style infographic of AutomotiveFamilyTree.com. The who owns who in the automotive world. The diagram now shows over 130 different vehicle manufactures from US, Europe, India, Asia, Russia and China. I have read there is more than 80 different vehicle manufactures in China. I made the decision not to list all of them, but the ones I included are among the top 40 manufactures in the world.
This is how the diagram works: For each major automotive owner, pick anywhere in the square for an enlarged picture. This picture will better show how each automotive group interacts with each other. Once the enlarged picture is up, follow the arrows. The arrows point to what the main company owns. Example: VW icon has a line drawn from VW with the arrow pointing at SEAT. VW owns SEAT. Here is an example if an automotive company that owns a percentage of another automotive group: GM icon shows a line to GM KOREA and along the line it shows 77% with an arrow pointing to GM KOREA. This demostrates, “GM (the first icon) owns 77% (the number along the line) of GM KOREA(arrow pointing to)”. The filled squares at the end of the line represent a joint venture, license agreement or other types of agreements between two companies.
I have been keeping up with mergers and acquisitions in the automotive world for more than a decade. I try to keep up with all the latest news in M & A, JV, and other types of agreements, but I'm not perfect. If you find a mistake, please feel free to email me with the link of the update.
Hint: When picking from the individual list below, aim above what you are looking for. Depending on your browser, it might not work as well as other browsers.
