There are few things to note or observe from the top list. The top most thing to notice is the entry made by USA based Tesla motors into the list of top 100 Global Brands. Tesla motors manufacture and provide Electric-only cars to consumers. Tesla have been very very successful. They provide Electric-only cars,which is a huge challenge for manufacturers but Tesla proved it to be a success. According to recent news,about 24,500 Tesla cars were sold in Quarter 3 of 2016,which is a remarkable. Moreover there are so many  YouTube videos of Tesla Model S (Videos link)beating high end modified sports/muscle cars in drag races. I wonder,what Tesla put in those electric motors which made these cars quicker than the quickest.
