August 27, 2019

Not to disappoint you but most badges you see on your favorite cars are not as transparent as you think they are today I’ll be showing you which automakers own your favorite car brands My name is Christian, and this is vehicle Virals make sure to subscribe for weekly out of motive content Let’s begin when you think of James Bond, which car brand comes to mind That’s right Aston, Martin today Aston, Martin isn’t owned by a larger automaker But don’t think it was always that way it was once under Ford and then sold to a group of investors in 2007 one key investor was Mercedes Benz parent company named leur the tie-in with Mercedes now gives Aston Martin access to AMG engines for its latest sports cars a sweet deal moving on BMW for you guys that didn’t know it stands for Bay or ish Motorin work It’s German for barbarian motor works BMW owns two automobile brands many Which was relaunched in 2001 and rolls-royce which was acquired in? 2002 you can even see some BMW influences in the rolls-royce Ghost sedan next one on the list there’s a automaker Daimler AG Ring a bell it probably doesn’t but at the same time it probably does because I just mentioned it when I talked about Aston Martin I know for sure it didn’t ring a bell for me when I first did my research its original name was damned ler bends before transitioned over to the new name damn ler AG in 1998 they own all of Mercedes divisions such as the Benz the AMG and a Maybach They also homesmart you remember seeing those tiny cars in the road They could basically pop a u-turn in one lane Daimler. Also owns a truck companies such as Freightliner alright Let’s move on to Fiat that was founded in 1899 it is Italy’s largest auto Manufacturer and also one of the oldest auto makers in the world They mainly produce railroad engines tractors and airplane engines until 1950 where they then offered a full lineup of cars Enough with the Boring stuff, which car companies do they control well here They are a breath Alfa Romeo Maserati and Chrysler which was apart after filing bankruptcy In 2011 with Chrysler comes all of their brands as well such as Dodge Jeep and Ram That’s right that means the ultra powerful Hellcat is also under Fiat you think that’s impressive wait till you see the last Automaker on this list make sure to watch the whole video the next automaker was actually under Fiat back in the day That is before ended up separated from its parent company in 2016 ladies and gentlemen Ferrari once known as Fiat crown jewel is now independent and known as a symbol of speed Luxury and wealth yep The next car company revolutionized the use of assembly lines for cars its iconic car the Model T Is widely considered the first massively available automobile any guesses if you guess forward then you’re correct? Ford Onan had major stakes in Land Rover Mazda mercury Aston Martin just like stated before Volvo and Jaguar all those brands were either sold or shut down and the only brand they currently own is Lincoln the next automaker company downsized Quite a bit after filing for bankruptcy back in 2009 you might have heard a bottom in the news I mean I couldn’t miss them. They were all over the web at the time that is General Motors Have known as GM the car brands. They currently own are Buick Cadillac Chevrolet GMC and Holden a brand only Distributed in Australia this next automaker was known as a new kid on the block back when it was founded in 1948 Honda named after one of the company’s founder Soichiro Honda Sorry about pronounced it wrong I remember during my teenage years encounter in Honda owners making fun of Acura owners and vice versa but all it took was to pop open the hood of an Acura Integra to expose the Honda branding under the hood their reactions Priceless moving on to Hyundai or Honda whatever you want to call it based in South Korea I launched his first car in cooperation with Ford in 1968 today hyundai owns a good chunk of kia, it’s key competitor You know what they say if you can’t beat them join them the two share many parts among their production such as engine and trans One interesting move that on the recently did was to branch out its Genesis model to a sub brand of its own Genesis motors next on the list is Mazda the name originates from our hua Mazda and Iranian god. That’s a cool fact. Isn’t it once known as a company that manufactured tools eventually expanded to automobiles in 1930 the only time I ever had with any other automaker was but Ford owned one third of the company Later on went on to sell its shares Which means Mazda is independently owned moving on to one of my favorite automakers of all time? McLaren a British firm known for building fast sexy sports cars, but hey That’s not all they also run a Formula One team and a division named applied technologies Which make a unique selection of a product such as bicycles medicine and even solar panels and yes McLaren is? Independently owned now. Let’s talk about Mitsubishi men you might not know but Mitsubishi Corporation It actually depends largest general trader market. What does general trader marking you ask I’m glad you asked according to Wikipedia Businesses working with some different type of products which are sold for consumer business or government purposes Mitsubishi became a car maker in 1970 and remain independent for a long time, but now it’s controlled by brand not Nissan Alliance talking about right now, Nissan They actually only 43% of Nissan as many of you guys probably already know Nissan runs his luxury focus division Infinity before I confirm that this was true I already had a hunch that they were closely related the same hunch I get when I see CVS and Walgreens and in Advance Auto Parts in an Autozone Nissan recently revived Datsun in order to sell economy cars to emerging markets they also own the Romanian car market Dacia and hold controller stakes in Mitsubishi Like mentioned previously not really much to say about the following Automaker company and that is Saab one unique thing is that they specialize in Aerospace and defense manufacturing as far as automobiles They’re not doing too hot sap isn’t quite dead, but it’s not doing too Well the following car maker is a Subaru they doing quite well for themselves By setting a new annual sales record for ten consecutive years And if you consider that they are for the most part independent you have to admit. That’s quite impressive I say most part because Toyota owns 16% of Subaru have you ever heard of Tata or Teta? Not sure which way to say it well It’s a company that currently owns Jaguar and Land Rover that they purchased from Ford back in 2008 according to most haters fame came when it released its Nano vehicle for $2,500 I mean look at it What is that banana was originally created to lead India’s and middle class away from motorcycles? Sadly the Nano had many issues and a filter his target by a long shot now. Let’s talk about Tesla There’s not really much to say other than it was founded by a group of engineers back in 2003 their cars are currently manufacturing in Fremont California everybody main independent from any other larger automaker the company recently outlines plans for a new semi truck a super-fast roadster and a new crossover called numata why moving on to Toyota one of the largest automobile manufacturers in the world They own lexus Dot 2 and Hino Motors, you might also remember the sign brand that was also under the Toyota umbrella I remember the boxy car the xB and a scion tc sign cars were targeted towards the youth but after slow sales Toyota ultimately decided to close the blinds for the sign in 2016 the following Swedish automaker was founded back in 1927 known as Volvo it was purchased by a Chinese firm from Ford Following a huge time investment and money to update the Volvo lineup and for the most part it paid off Now Bulbul stands as an independent automaker company I might have just saved the best for last And this next automaker has to have one of the best lineup some brands under their belt it blows me away Just thinking about it the automaker is Volkswagen and for those that didn’t know it means people’s car in German They quickly rose to the top. Thanks to its beetle selling well worldwide It is also one of the biggest auto makers in the world ready to be blown away Let’s go they own howdy Bentley Porsche Bugatti, Lamborghini C skids man trucks Scania and Ducati Impressive all guys that will say I hope you guys found that entertaining and informative at the same time if you liked the video make sure and hit that like button And I want to know Comment below, what’s your favorite car and don’t forget to subscribe?

  1. UPDATE So it looks like YouTube decided to start suggesting this older video of mine to a lot of people so I thought I'd address the following: This is an older video, in fact one of my first videos. I didn't bother looking up proper pronounciation, and was doing it for fun. So please be nice :). My newer videos are much better I promise 🙂 Make sure to follow me on social media for updates, links below

  2. He failed to mention that for every Ford product there is a matching Mazda or Volvo platform… cept for the Queeny F150 and the Mustank!!! Found On Russian Dump…

  3. I can't stop lmao suburu abrath datsu vólvo mcleren mitsupichi renat , im not judging ok, i just think it's funny

  4. Subaru used to be a wholly owned subsidiary of fugi heavy industries. A lot of these companies have partnerships brz and toyota 86.

  5. Renault-Nissan (Reh-Know just FYI). Worst thing to happen to Nissan. 2014 Pathfinder – first nissan I ever owned and its a cheap plastic-filled, flimsy POS.

  6. And Volvo trucks is one of the worlds largest truck making companies in the world by currently owning Renault trucks and the American Mack. But Volvo is still making the best and currently most powerful truck engines. Their D16 engine is a 16L I6 engine and the most powerful in their lineup produces 750hp and 3550Nm of torque at 1000–1400RPM.

    Lamborghini: crap

  9. Nothing wrong with this video or the fun pronunciation I enjoyed it (apart from the annoying and unnecessary "music" in the background.)The handsome young presenter makes me feel old (well I am going that way!) because I remember the days when there were a lot more manufacturers before they all married divorced remarried and so on. Those were the days. Now they seem to rely on gizzmos but you still have to replace bits and bobs rather than mend them

  10. You should’ve probably learned how to pronounce the names properly before making this video. You mispronounced like half of them.

  11. Here's a challenge:

    (They're the easy ones)…


  12. What a mess this video is. Between the mistakes and what was own before and current holdings… oh my God, yo know what bye!!!

  13. Good to know BMW stand for


    Finally those barbarians got their things together.

  14. But The Volkswagen Group Owns Audi, Bentley, Porsche, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Seat, Skoda, Man, Scania, Ducati

  15. Names pronounced wrong: Daimler, Maybach, Abarth, Chevrolet, Hyundai, McLaren, Renault, TATA, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda

  16. I didnt know Mazda was named after Ahura Mazda , Persian God. Interesting. Sad how low that country dropped after stupid religious fenatics got in power.

  17. S?? Is that even a car brand ? It’s SEAT !!!!! SEAT !!!!! SEAT!!!!
