There's a whole wide world of vehicle brands out there, but how many of them do you really know? In North America, we only have a fraction that are available in other markets. Just take a trip to Australia, and you'll quickly realize how many automakers are out there.
Quite a few vehicle brands have gone the way of the dodo, making them only memories in history books. Some of these automakers even influenced the industry in big ways, like Saab, but didn't have the financials to keep going.
A number of younger vehicle brands have cropped up in the past 30 or so years. Quite a few hail from Asia, where economies are booming and more people are driving than ever. A new wave of technologically-advanced car companies in the United States and elsewhere are also fueling the increasing numbers of automakers in the world, even as other brands have died out. It's an interesting time of transition that's really reshaping how we get around in cities and open country.
