hhmm, makes me wonder are there really these many brands and there are interwoven to this extent! this is very informative indeed, and how come threads like these got ignored.

A very informative thread Kiran.
@rider 60
Well i just googled around, and I found Samsung (Motors) to be a part of the Electronics giant Samsung. Now it is a division of Renault (Renault owning 70% stake in Samsung Motors.) and now it is known as Renault Samsung Motors.
here is the website: :: RENAULT SAMSUNG ::

Interesting to know its further interwoven link, Nissan is a shareholder in Renault & vice-versa.

I think this a very informative thread, and can be referred to for the regular updates taking place in the automotive world: who has acquired whom, who bought stake in whom, etc;..IMO this thread certainly requires the "excellent thread" rating from all the members, or the thread can go just unnoticed in the shifting gears section.
I have voted for this thread and urge the others to do so...

to all the mods and the admin: just my 2cents
Cheers,
Dhaval

Its sort of interesting to note that Porsche holds 30%+ stake in VW. Shows how well managed and how Porsche has done over these years. VW is a giant !! Indirectly Porsche owns a part of Skoda, Audi, Lambo and Bentley. Awesome.

Default Who owns who in the car industry: the Tube map

Pretty cool stuff.. looks like lots of work gone into this.

2010 version : CARtubemap2010.pdf

2005 version tubemap2005.pdf

Quote:
Once every five years is quite enough. I drew CAR Magazine's first 'Tube map' of the global car industry in 2005 and it nearly fried my brain. The idea seemed simple. With a nod to Harry Beck’s iconic schematic of the London Underground, we’d represent all the major automotive groups as lines and their brands as stops. The lines would only cross where the groups had a significant joint venture; developing new technologies or building cars or engines together. Simple? You try doing it.

ut it was worth the brain-ache. You could see at a glance which car makers were busy deal-makers, and which remained aloof. You could start to see the rise of the Chinese and Indian car makers, and how well connected they already were. You wondered at the logic of multi-brand colossi like GM. You might have found a few makers you hadn’t heard of before – Iran Khodro, anyone? – and you could play an automotive version of ‘six degrees of Kevin Bacon’; how many changes do you need to get from Maruti to Bugatti?

The original was a minor online hit, so we decided to do it again, not least to chart how the car industry has been changed by arguably the most turbulent two years in its history. And it keeps changing; Tesla’s deal with Toyota was announced just as we were going to press and required a last-minute redrawing of the map, and Ford’s announcement that it will kill Mercury came just too late.

Default Global Automotive Cross Holdings

Hi All,
Hope everyone is doing well and revving hard.
I came across this beautiful chart showing the cross holdings among all the automakers around the world.
This categorically explains how all automakers are related to each other in some way or the other.

Hope this is helpful and appreciated by all.
Drive Safe.

Good find Rehaan.

However I feel that Suzuki owes its existence to Maruti Suzuki and not vice versa. But for its Indian operations, Suzuki would have been lapped up by any of the Japanese giants.
