General Motors has always been known as one of the largest car manufacturers in America, as they have been around since 1908. General Motors was one of the leading automobile manufacturers during the early 1900s but ended up exploding during World War II like many other American companies.
General Motors supplied the military with a vast number of vehicles and proved to be a reliable company. In 1998, General Motors decided to join a partnership with the Chinese company Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. Although a Chinese company doesn’t own General Motors, they still depend on them heavily, which makes them not fully American-owned.
