This corporation owns BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce

There are many car manufacturers and automotive sub-brands. So many that it is often not readily apparent which company makes the specific model. For example, it might surprise some people to learn that Hyundai makes the new Genesis GV60 worth discussing. Or that the new EV SUV Polestar 2 is a Volvo creation. Some companies, such as BMW, are named for their major automotive brand. Still, unless you’re a car enthusiast or an industry insider, you’d never guess what other sub-brands they have in their portfolio.
