Auto Report 2021-2022

The Wards story began in 1924, when our founder began tracking stock market and business statistics. The popularity of this data led to the creation of a newsletter on vehicle production. He would stand outside the automaker factory gates and asked the workers how many cars they had built that day. Before long, automaker execs saw our numbers as more reliable than those their middle managers gave them, and the Wards reputation for data accuracy was born.

Over the decades, the Wards Intelligence brand has grown into a collection of valuable services used by major automakers, top suppliers, financial firms, and policy makers. Today, Wards Intelligence delivers quantitative data, product plans, market analysis, consulting, events and OEM strategy in connectivity, mobility, autonomy, electrification, and propulsion. Our team of expert analysts equip clients with the knowledge they need to make better decisions and ultimately stay one step ahead of the competition.
