 Next on the list is the Buick Motor Division, which is an American automobile division of the American manufacturer General Motors.

Buick has been marketed as a premium automobile brand, selling entry-level luxury vehicles positioned above its mainstream GM stablemate Chevrolet.

The company is currently the oldest active North American automotive manufacturer and among the oldest automobile brands in the world.

It originated as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899, and  was later incorporated as the Buick Motor Company on May 19, 1903, by Scottish born David Dunbar Buick in Detroit, Michigan.

The first Buick made for sale, the 1904 Model B, was built in Flint, Michigan, and 37 Buicks made that year, none of which survived.

And now, the stats show that Buick  sold 1,032,331 vehicles worldwide in calendar year 2013, which is a record for the brand.
