The most valuable car brands in the world

The world of cars has changed drastically in the last ten years. Electrification and the war against CO2 and the growth of the Asian market have drastically changed the balance of power among the largest, and the sovereign world leader is Tesla, whether we look at the valuation of the brand or the raw data on the value of shares on the stock exchanges.

When it comes to the value of a brand, it is a process in which many factors are taken into account, from financial results and sales, the state of the stock market, through image, to technology, patents and prospects for the future…

Arguably the most valuable car brand in 2022 is Tesla at nearly $76 billion, more than double Toyota, which is second on the list at around $33 billion. Mercedes and BMW follow, and the Volkswagen and Ford brands that used to be near or at the very top are now far behind. Tesla is almost six times more valuable than Ford and eight times more valuable than VW, in front of which a Chinese brand, BYD, even pushed forward,.

With its $76 billion value, Tesla is still dwarfed by the world’s largest companies outside the automotive industry. Apple is the most valuable brand in the world and is worth 947 billion, Google is second with 820 billion, and the third Amazon is worth 705 billion dollars.

If we look at the value of the company itself on the stock market, the order is different, but Tesla is again at the top and even more dominant. Tesla’s current market value is an incredible 706 billion dollars, which is roughly equal to the total value of all the remaining companies in the Top 10. The second is Toyota Motor Corporation with a market value of 214 billion dollars, and the third is China’s BYD, which is worth 132 billion. And here are the former giants behind. Volkswagen Group is fourth, GM seventh, Ford Motor Company eighth, and another Chinese corporation, Great Wall Motors, is on the top 10 list.

As can be seen from the list of really big players in the global automotive industry, such as Mazda, Nissan, Renault, Volvo and Suzuki, they are not even among the 20 most valuable. It is the last of the great growth of the market in China, of their manufacturers, but also of the attractiveness of the companies to traders on the stock exchange. Tesla is the most attractive, but it must be emphasized that their stock falls and rises noticeably more than most of the others, which are mostly stable. Although Tesla sells and earns much less than many other brands from these two top charts, it is no longer a dwarf in terms of production and sales. Last year, the Model 3 broke into the top 10 best-selling cars in the world.
