Redefining the American Auto Industry was a report produced by the Association of Global Automakers and the American International Automobile Dealers Association to demonstrate the economic impact of international automakers on the U.S. economy.

The goal of this report was to educate policy makers on the reality of today’s vibrant and growing U.S. auto industry, which is made up of an array of global companies putting down deep roots in America. Each company, whether founded in the U.S. or abroad, contributes significantly to our national economy and local markets.

Check out the cool visuals they used to easily explain international automakers' importance to the U.S. economy through investment, employment and payroll.
