Statistics and Facts about Car Brands

In 2014, Japan's Toyota topped the list of the world's most valuable car brands with an estimated value of around 29.6 billion U.S. dollars. Toyota is the main division of the Toyota Motor Company, which also sells premium cars under its Lexus marque and the Millennial-aimed brand Scion. The number one spot in the ranking coincides with positive customer satisfaction ratings: Toyota has received consistently higher than average customer satisfaction ratings since at least 2006. With a value of around 25.7 billion U.S. dollars, Germany's BMW was ranked second, while Ford and Audi had the largest boosts in value, according to market research organization Millward Brown. In their 2014 BrandZ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands study, the firm used consumer surveys and data from Bloomberg and Kantar to determine brand value.

Ford and Chevrolet are the most valuable U.S.-based car brands. Ford's annual vehicle production is expected to exceed seven million units by 2016. Chevrolet is manufactured by General Motors, North America's largest automaker. GM's brands include Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Opel, Vauxhall, Wuling and Buick. Buick's vehicle assembly volume is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of a whopping 12 percent between 2012 and 2017.
