Summary: Lexus and Cadillac did best which is in contrast to other countries. The 74% overall growth isn't that large either in a comparison to elsewhere.
Now adding the other brands to the BAM marques, how do things stack up? Total sales growth goes to 158%, due to the BAM brands increasing 218%! The 'Others' took 42% in 2010 but by 2016 only had 28%.
