Tesla is the largest US automaker in history

Ford set the previous record in 1999 being worth 80 billion. Tesla is now worth 85 billion. The article says that Tesla is still dwarfed by international companies like Volkswagen ($98B) and Toyota ($232B).

Is that just Volkswagen, not all of the brands that they own? I recently saw that they might be the world's largest vehicle manufacturer.

I think that was including commercial trucks.

That was from a video talking about Volkswagen pushing electric vehicles. Since they are so big, this will make a significant difference.

GM is worth $50B, Ford is worth $37B and Fiat Chrysler is worth $22B, so Tesla is worth ore than GM and F-C combined.

Sales in Asia will undoubtedly help Tesla a fair amount.
