Below is a list of the world's major international and national corporations as of 1997.


Here are listed the world's twenty largest automotive corporations by both production and revenue:

1. Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan) – the world's largest automaker by both production and revenue. A collaborative project with Ford led to Toyota becoming one of the first two automakers in the world (and the first in Japan) to produce all-electric vehicles for consumer use, starting in 1980 and continuing through to the present day.

2. Honda Motor Company, Ltd. (Japan) – the second largest automaker in the world (and Japan), Honda has long been in competition with Toyota, though, unlike their rival, Honda has a far larger manufacturing base in the United States, the largest, in fact, for any foreign automaker. Following the surprise of the Toyota-Ford alliance that produced the first modern all-electric vehicles beginning in 1980, Honda raced to start its own program, eventually producing their own all-electric lineup by 1986.

3. Ford Motor Company – the world's third-largest automaker, and the largest in the United States, based out of Detroit, Michigan. Ford, in conjunction with Toyota, was one of both the world and America's first automaker to produce the first modern all-electric vehicles, beginning in 1980. This was the direct result of over a decade of development, initiated by the US Electric Vehicle Development Act of 1966. Its primary divisions are Lincoln, Mercury, and Edsel.

1. United Global Industries (UGI) – the world's largest corporation, with a current annual revenue of just over $400 billion, and a total net worth of approximately $2.97 trillion, headquartered largely in Chicago, Illinois's Skyneedle. UGI's current President and CEO, Charles Byrnes, first brought his father's struggling company, American National Industries, to worldwide attention in 1978 with his introduction of the revolutionary NCD (nano-cancer disintegration) therapy – the long sought-after 'cure' for the dreaded condition – inaugurating the modern era of healthcare, in which nanomedicine has played a rather significant role, from the advent of accelerated healing techniques in 1981 to Nanamel (a thin nano-coating put on human teeth, rendering the enamel virtually invulnerable to even the most acidic of drinks and food) in 1989. Re-branded as United Global Industries in 1982, the company's annual revenue skyrocketed with the widespread use of accelerated healing and the continued success of NCD. Current divisions/departments of UGI include automotive safety, energy, military, and healthcare/med-tech. UGI is also the US War Department's biggest contractor, with a current contract worth of nearly $40 billion.
