About Us


Wards Intelligence is a world leader for independent, unbiased global Automotive and AutoTech Research, Intelligence, Forecasting and Consulting.


The Wards story began in 1924.

This is when our founder started tracking stock market and business statistics.

He would stand outside automaker factory gates and ask workers how many cars they had built that day, and use this data to create newsletters on vehicle production.

Before long, automaker execs saw our data as more reliable than what their middle managers were giving them. And Wards’ reputation for data accuracy was born.

Nearly 100 years on, our mission is to look well beyond the headlines and research the trends that will impact the bottom line of this innovative industry in the months and years to come.

Ultimately, we are here to keep our customers and clients ahead of the trends and their competition.

Our automotive data is still the most accurate and comprehensive in the business, but today we also have a team of leading automotive experts to provide that next level of context and insight.


Our research, intelligence, forecasting and consulting services are used by everyone from major automakers to top suppliers, financial investors to policy makers.

Mainstream media from the Wall Street Journal to NPR regularly cite our insights, as does groups such as the Federal Reserve Board.

We focus on the topics that matter the most to you and everyone else in the automotive ecosystem, including ADAS & Autonomy, Electrification & Advanced Propulsion, Cockpit of the Future, Connectivity, Digital Economy, Markets, Mobility, Software Defined Vehicles and Sustainability.

And to provide a solid foundation on volumes into the future, we partner with LMC Automotive, a global leader of automotive market forecasts.
