Data & Support

The Monthly Autocast’s forecasts delineate volume by individual model line and assembly plant over a six year horizon for every manufacturer operating in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The scope of the report, therefore, far exceeds that of other automotive trade publications, and creates a comprehensive, yet easily workable, framework for planning.

To ease use of this vast pool of intelligence, each subscription offers the following elements of analysis and support:
