It’s the third time in a row that Toyota is at the top of the automotive tree. The Japanese car brand has a financial value of $54,107 million, up by 5% from last year. In second place is Mercedes-Benz, with $50,866 million financial worth (+5%). Then there’s BMW ($41,631 million, +5%), then Tesla ($36,270 million, +184%), and then Honda ($21,315 million, -2%).
Here are the rankings of the automotive companies in the Interbrand’s Best Global Brands list.
- Toyota $54,107 million (+5%)
- Mercedes-Benz $50,866 million (+3%)

Notice the 184% financial growth of Tesla, incredible, isn’t it? Toyota may have won the title of best value automotive brand of 2021. But Tesla is, hands down, the fastest-growing brand. Ranked at an overall 14th position, Tesla jumped 26 places from last year, the highest leap out of all companies. At this pace, Tesla might become the next Toyota in a year or two.
On another note, Honda is the only car brand with a negative year-on-year value. That means things have not been going well for the Japanese company, and that’s the tea.
