Top 10 car companies

The automobile industry is an important part of the global economy, and the vehicles it produces can efficiently transport people and goods not only within the country but also throughout the region. These companies produce vehicles such as cars, trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles (SUVs). Some even produce motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, as well as commercial vehicles such as transport trucks and buses. The largest automakers have an unusually large footprint worldwide, selling cars to consumers and businesses around the world. The headquarters of these large companies are mainly located in a few industry-leading countries—Japan, Germany, and the United States—but the list of the top 10 companies also includes a car company from Italy and a car company from South Korea.
