Automotive News is teaming up with an expanded roster of information partners to enhance its data center.
The newly renamed Automotive News Research & Data Center will introduce a number of changes, beginning this month. They include:
- More data. Additions to autonews.com/datacenter will come from these partners:
Experian: New and used U.S. vehicle registrations as well as statistics on customer loyalty and vehicles in operation.
Linkfluence: Consumer sentiment, by vehicle make and model, on attributes such as design, performance and value for money.
Autoflyte: Market insights based on daily U.S. sales. This information will be available at a discount to Automotive News subscribers.
A sampling of data from most of these providers will be featured in Automotive News on the fourth Monday of each month, starting Jan. 25. A listing of parts suppliers to select vehicles, known as car cutaways and provided by IHS Markit, will be included.
In addition, our partnership with Market Scan expands. The company will continue to provide our U.S. incentives data and offer Data Center subscribers insight into the best monthly payments offered by captive finance organizations and other lenders.
- Research and insight. The Research & Data Center will feature a library that will include analysis informed by surveys and executive interviews. The library will also host lists, guides and directories regularly published by Automotive News, including our annual rankings of top suppliers and dealership groups.
- Online redesign. A new look for auto news.com/datacenter will take effect in late January. It will be the first step in a long-term strategy to make technology investments to improve the user experience.
