Wards IS Automotive. We've covered the auto industry nearly since its inception. From our beginnings a century ago, counting Model Ts rolling off the first assembly lines, to our current standing as a GLOBAL LEADER IN AUTOMOTIVE INTELLIGENCE on matters spanning the globe, Wards has the vital insights you need to understand how industry trends and disruptions will reshape the automotive world in the years to come.
In 1924, our founder launched a newsletter on vehicle production. He stood outside auto factories and took workers out for a drink after their shifts to find out how many cars they made that day. Before long, automaker execs saw our numbers as more reliable than those their middle managers gave them, and the Wards reputation was born. Over the decades, the Wards business grew to include magazines, reference annuals, a website, enewsletters, analytics tools, forecasts, awards and events. Today Wards counts all major manufacturers and most top suppliers as premium subscribers.
