'The Story of America's Car Giants' is an interactive infographic by Firestone that takes a look at back at the major auto brands since the 1800s.

The graphic highlights whether the car is of European, American or an Asian make, visualizing significant points in automotive history, such as the mass production of the Model-T, the drop in demand for cars during the Great Depression and now, a shift towards thinking about cars alongside sustainability. Hovering over the colored bars on the infographic also shows some of the most well-known car models throughout the decades, and the graphic can also be filtered to show which brands are owned by the BMW Group or the Toyota Group for example.
