Most successful euro company?

I believe the germans have the most successful car company(s).

But there are companies form other countries such as sweden(if not sweden, then one of the norweigen nations), france, Great Britain, i think Italy...any others?

How successful are the other car manufactuers of Europe?

Goes like this
1. Germany
2. France
3. UK
4. Sweden
5. Italy
Most of UK's and Sweden's car companys are now owned by Ford or GM.
But the brits still have TVR, Noble, Morgan, MG-Rover, Radical, Westfield, Ariel, Caterham, Bristol and Mercos.
The Swedes now only have Koenigsegg

you would be unbelivably WRONG. ever hear of the Americans? it seems not. They spank all the other european companies in terms of money made. besides, what's the criteria for "most successful"? most money made? best client base? best rearview mirrors? we need specifics, and people like Car Nirvana need to stop spewing bullshit like the above post.

He is right tho...lots of car companies in the European Area are owned by American companies...but I dont know tons about companies in Europe becuase I live in America...but from what I can tell the Germans have got probably the most...consumers... (not including Asian and American Companies...obviously)

what i found bullshit about your post is that there is simply no way to say which is most successful. what is successful? if you're talking about overpriced cars, yes, the Germans win. but what about safety? the Swedes own everybody in the WORLD. and even so, there is no "most successful" car company. if there was then we'd all be driving it, and it would monopolize the industry.

thank you, and have a nice day.

"Frankly no one gives a damn"

well i do, im interested in pointless facts, which really may not be too pointless if ur in the buisnees world of cars manufacturing But im not, just want to know the statistics.

Sorry for the very general term successful, really intended to know which company sells the most cars. Simply which company sells the most....well actually maybe profits can be tied in there. A mix of sells most number of cars and most profit made. Im not concerned with with which company has been most succesful in producing the saftest car. But that sounds interesting....which car companies have been most succesful in producing safe cars?

Sounds like its the swedish Koenigsegg(no clue how to pronouce it ) that are most successful in this area. But then why is this? Couldnt americans or the Japanese produce safer cars then sweden? My initial thought why this is so is becouse maybe Koenigsegg uses pours in more resouces(money, work force) into safty for making a big selling point to compete agaisnt he other larger car companies around the globe.

On whos rating system? The US Govement's, Japan's, or Sweden's? In other words, you can take a car from Sweden and by there safety ratings, be blown off the charts. At the same time, bring that car to the US and by our standards be total crap and not safe to jack up quickly.


I wish someone could give me a comparative on the standard differences between the countries and their goverments because I'm lost there
