World Top Ranking Car Companies
by Toperz Team • Sunday, January 22nd

Sorted out By Brand Name Of Car ,rank ,name, location Of Car Production then its inner branches internal ranking from top to bottom

Why do I care? Because Geely made the list as the second largest China based automaker, because it is a private Hong Kong listed company, not a PRC state owned enterprise, and because they've seen fit to partner in a joint venture with pip-squeak Kandi Technologies [KNDI] to develop electric vehicles which are missing from their current lineup.

Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. (0175.HK) -HKSE

Geely Company Brief

The Kandi Story continues to evolve more or less according to the screen play. The car industry is capital intensive and a tiny startup has little or no chance of making the big leagues on their own, specially in such a mature industry where consolidation and not diversification is the rule. The only way Kandi can grow fast is by making alliances with established and better funded companies which is precisely what Kandi has been doing these past two or three years since they got into the pure EV business. Kandi is partnering with provincial governments, the largest Chinese electric utilities, battery makers and with other auto makers. Kandi has also bought up some production facilities for their own use. The biggest danger I see for individual investors is KNDI being bought out. With each joint venture this risk lessens as the purchase price rises and more partners have a reason to oppose Kandi getting acquired.
