ABSTRACT
The article reports that Europe's automobile industry is healthier than its counterpart in the United States such as General Motors and Ford Motors. Europe has a fragmented market, which is made up of a number of players vying for market share; whereas, the U.S. automobile industry has been dominated by Ford Motors, General Motors, and DaimlerChrysler. The consumer demand for smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles has been less pronounced in Europe than in the U.S.
