They are rich, have good institutions, are well organized, yet don't produce shit. Even Sweden has 2 car brands.
>>389927913We don't produce our own cars either. It's all foreign car makers.
>>389928050Imagine thinking I ever thought that Slovakia would produce cars.
>>389927913Finland does have truck brand SISU. Also Mercedes-Benz A-series and AMD-GT are made in Finland.
>>389927913>finland>richour public administration is rich, our people are poor
There are Cars made here. For example all the Mercedes G Waggons are build here!
>>389927913Only pickup trucks, suvs are profitable.
>>389927913I think we're just too small to have a brand targeting us specifically.We do have a car industry: VDL Nedcar makes cars for foreign brands.And I think we make quite a lot of busses, trucks and other commercial vehicles that don't require massive advertising campaigns like private vehicles do.
>>389927913We offered up half our oil for a 50% stake in Volvo at one point lol, good thing the Swedes didn't think it was a good enough offer
>>389927913We had Spyker, not sure they're still in business nowadays.Probably not cause we all buy German and French cars anyway lol.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzwXmPuSFNc
>>389928822Maybe, but definitely not cars.
>>389928438G wagons are Austrian to begin with.Some Austrian guy developed them for the Iranian torture brigades, and a consortium of Austrian companies produces them.Mercedes just slaps their logo on them and does the retail.
>>389927913Map is wrong, NL has a car brand called Spyker
>>389928175Amd GT? Never heard of that chipset before
>>389927913We had a few car company start-ups, but they got bought out and closed.
>>389929319The ultimate goal for most startups
>>389929496Who the fuck buys that shit?Has to be a money laundering scheme.
>>389928297No, Czechia did, not you. Czechoslovakia is not Slovakia
>>389928436yeah right, i saw your saunas filled with sugar bags..
>>389929152>SpykerLOL.Apparently latest news is they got some Russian investors to re-start the scam...ehm..I mean totally legit company.After buying Saab maybe they can buy Tesla this time.
>>389929022Spyker is still in business, but they just make weird sportscars nowadays
>>389929619>money launderingIf you wanted to do that here, why do a car company when you could just use ING?
>>389927913Does this count?
>>389927913Sweden actually has 4 brands.Volvo, SAAB, Koenigsegg and Polestar 2.
>>389929619I think many rich people are genuinely retarded and will believe anything.They invest in hundreds of companies and when they see some cool startup they get excited and invest a few million of the billions they have, hoping the gamble pays off.Part of it is the idea that if you invest in 1000 random startups and only one of them becomes a massive success it would totally overshadow the 999 that were a total loss.But AFAIK this strategy has never worked, and proved catastrophic in the "dot com bubble".
>>389930240>Koenigsegg and Polestar 2.But those are side brands.
>>389930240Meh you cant count saab anymore.
>>389930240> Volo> PolestarThey're owned by the Chinese kek
>>389930240AFAIK SAAB no longer exists as a car brand.And Polestar is just Volvo.
>>389930447Koenigsegg is not a side-brand. Polestar 2, yeah, pretty much.
>>389930240And btw isn't Scania swedish?
If we're going to count Koenigsegg I'm counting Lightyear.
>>389927913Austria makes motorcycles.
>>389930583Ah, sure, they do not make tiny-cars anymore because they made too good cars and people of today want cheap cars. They still make trucks. Volvo cars is not swedish anymore, but the trucks are swedish. My reasoning for saying volvo and saab makes cars is they could if it was needed or profit margins changed for quality cars.
>>389927913Too small countries>>389930240>Polestar 2it's just Polestar, but its owned by China, just like Volvo, so not Swedish>>389930956>ScaniaThats SAAB
>>389927913You forgot Switzerland
>>389931191>Too small countriesSweden has like 9 million people...
>>389931386Yes but they have banks, they don't have to produce anything.
>>389930240>SAABded>PolestarIt's just Volvo>Koenigseggsupercars don't count
>>389930240>>389930737>Polestar two? It's just Polestar
>>389931447Neither do Norway since they've oil.
>>389931191You are right, we only have two different truck industries and make sportscars. Guess it is a margins game at this point. Like with trains, we made them when it was cool. Like with airplanes, we make them because still cool.
>>389931052Saab is bankrupt.There is a plane company also called Saab, but they can't make cars.Saab was bought by a Dutch businessman as a totally legit deal totally not a scam why you call it a scam? no he wasn't going to just bankrupt it to scam investors no, oh whoopsie it went bankrupt what a surprise!
>>389927913Typical low iqed pol....Austria has magna-steyr design house, the designed many vehicles and vehicle components. The G-Wagon is Austrian designed and built.
>>389931589Might be, just see that Polestar 2 commercial and think it is some faggot name for a carbrand.
>>389927913Cuz Germany would outcompete them.
>>389931715Yeah, long tradition to dump the bags, nobody wants to carry a shit bag.
>>389927913Why would we? We’re perfectly happy letting other countries specialize in vehicles while we venture in other markets.
>>389931715Scania seems to be the saab truck company name. Really just a game of finacial fuckery and risk management.
>>389930737>>389930447Polestar broke free. They're technically independent.... But yea they basically still makes Volvos. They're just Volvo copies.
>>389931777>faggot name for a carbrand.It was the name of a rally racing team.I also found it a bit odd.I think they were just worried about spoiling the Volvo brand if their first electric cars became a total failure.Wouldn't be surprised if they make Volvo branded cars on the same platform, and then take Polestar out of the market or reserve them for the luxury segment (much like Mercedes AMG)
>>389927913>wasting time competing with already established european car brands with millions of patents and etc., thus making it difficult to achieve even a fraction of the production that would allow them to compete in any meaningful wayoh yea, sure, why not dude?
>>389928436For Europoor nation we are quite wealthy.
>>389932326EUV lithography.It soaks up every single good engineer that graduates at Dutch universities.
>>389932326cheese. cheap romanian hookers. funny videos.
>>389932620Sound rad tbqh. Europeans seem to have a need to do cool shit.
>>389932608But do you make?You once had a cutting edge gum industry that you transformed to a cellphone and IT industry. But what do you do now mongolbros?Captcha: SYRYPY
>>389927913Because it's going to trash the place around production.You need a lot of space too.Go see some German cities where they make car parts.Are around the fabric is full of waste.
>>389927913>2022>countries make carsretarded pole spotted who's obviously not in the industryautomotive corporations are international. G Wagon is produced in Austria
>>389927913Porsche was in Austria before moving to Stuttgart
>>389927913Why do they need to produce their own cars? Autarky with current advances in logistics and technology is retarded.Why waste time on copying others, which may or may not be better than the competition, just for the hell of it, when you can do your own thing which you do best and capitalize on that?It's like nobody understands even the most basic economics anymore.But I guess such stupidity is to be expected from a filthy poolack.
>>389933696Well in this continent of beggars you don't have to do much to be a king - or at least noble.
>>389927913The KTM X-Bow and several of our army's vehicles are made in Austria.
>>389929904Looks like the inside of a brothel. Quintessentially Dutch.
>>389927913Yes, we produce flying cars
>>389934011Retarded kurwa, I got VW, Mercedes and a tank factory in my town, yet there is no scrap metal or waste from this companies flying around the streets. I can see Krauss Maffei Wegman from my place and there isn't a single molecule leaving their production facilities.
