who owns who?

hi guys! i want to expand my knowledge to this car indusrty world. lol!

so i want to ask you guys if what this certain car company owns another brand. for example, Toyota owns Lexus as their luxury/high-end car company. something like that.
also, Ford and Mazda teamed up right? why is this and what is the story behind this? and any other familiar cases of two different car companies teamed up just like this?

your replies would be very much appreciated!

Re: who owns who?

I would say the story behind any company buying out another is the all mighty dollar. It doesn't just happen in the car world. Take Wal-Mart for example. They own or have controlling interest in alot of companies around the world. It is easier to buy a well known name then to start one from scratch.

Re: who owns who?

Toyota/Lexus/Scion
Renault/Nissan/Infiniti
Honda/Acura
Hyundai/Kia
GM = Chevy/GMC/Pontiac/Hummer/Biuck/Saturn/Sabb/Cadillac/Opel/Vaxhall/Holden/Daewoo (Merged into Chevy)/Isuzu
FMC = Ford/Lincon/Mercury/Jaguar/Range Rover/Aston Martin/Volvo/Mazda
DC = Chrysler/Dodge/Mercedes Benz/Smart/Maybach/Jeep/Freightliner (I think)
BMW/Rolls Royce/Mini
VAG = VW/Audi/Porsche/Bentley/Skoda/SEAT/Bugatti
Subaru - primary owner Fuji Heavy Industries, Minority = GM
Mitsubishi - formerly DaimlerChrysler, not anymore
Lamborghini - has some relationship with VAG, but I don't think owned.

I should note that this list includes companies that have primary shareholders in other companies, not just companies that are outright owned.
