Tesla Motors broke into the Top 100 Interbrand's Best Global Brands 2016 Rankings, finding a place right at the bottom - #100.
According toInterbrand, the value of Tesla brand stands at $4 billion and because a lot of companies on this list are not that far ahead and experiencing negative changes, Tesla should stay in the rank for long.

The top name in the rank is Apple with $178 billion in brand value. Just imagine how high it could go up even further if Apple could manage to also successfully introduce electric cars on the market.
Top all-electric car maker (by global volume) Nissan Motors also climbed the list this year, finishing at #43, while Toyota was the top automotive company, ranking #5th with a brand value of $53.5 million (see full list here).
