European Car Brands Automotive Sector

By year 2018 He still has more than a month and a half left to say goodbye to us forever. However, faced with this fact, the typical rankings of all the years are already starting to happen. Among them, you could not miss the one that publishes Forbes and how could it be otherwise is focused on the monetary value of brands . As is logical, the car brands could not be left behind, because like any other brand, they are part of the world trade universe.

In the list they published a few days ago , there are the 100 most valuable brands in the world in 2018 . Among the lucky ones there are all kinds, from those focused on food, insurance, health, luxury and of course, car brands . However, and although it may seem somewhat contradictory, they are not all they are, because of their value, only some have managed to sneak into this top 100. In this case, only 12 have been graced and against what many might think, not everything is what it seems.

1. Toyota ​​span>

Toyota Auris-Corolla XSE Hatchback

Toyota ​​strong> is the first car brand we can find in the Forbes listing. It occupies the ninth place in this ranking, and although last year 2017 lost the world sales lead, here what matters is money. And yes, with a value of 44,700 million dollars a 9 percent grows compared to last year. In this way, it shows that selling more does not imply earning more or, in this case, it is worth more.

The signature of the star is the queen in the premium segment, but its value is 34,400 million dollars .

BMW would be the car brand that stands with the bronze in this close list, occupying the 20th place. The bayerische reaches in 2018 a value of no less than 31,400 million dollars , 9 percent more than in 2017. This figure places it very close to Mercedes-Benz, a situation that in terms of worldwide sales is the other way around. Another clear example that selling more does not mean it is worth more.

Honda CR-V

The second manufacturer Japanese that we find in this listing is Honda . The signature of the "H", with a brand value of 25,500 million dollars , registered an increase with respect to 2017 of 6 percent. The position he occupies in the Forbes list is 24 , marking a greater difference compared to his rivals. In any case, it is noteworthy that a firm that has a limited impact in Europe is capable of achieving such an assessment.

Its growth with respect to 2017 has been of 5 percent, being the third smallest increase of the whole list. In any case, this figure is weighed down by the problems in America and diesel engines EA189.

Ford achieved a value of 14.1 billion dollars in 2018, 3 percent more than in 2017. This growth is the first lowest on the list, a figure that may be due to the oscillations that have had their values ​​on the New York Stock Exchange.

12In our ranking it ranks 12th thanks to a value of 7.900 million dollars and a growth of 16 percent. Like Audi, the crisis of Dieselgate has taken its toll, being well below Toyota. Again, the example of selling more does not imply being the maximum value.
