Auto industry news is popular across a broad range of interests, so Wiser has made it easier than ever to stay up-to-date. We have created a tailored, daily digest featuring content on the auto industry from around the web. It is easy to use, comprehensive and free. The auto industry has had a significant impact on the lives of everyday Americans and it has influenced the country's infrastructure, economy, and position in the world. Its origins date back to the 1800s and by the early 1900s cars were being produced in the thousands. Today, the industry has annual worldwide revenues of more than $2 trillion dollars, with about 90 million cars produced each year. The industry is worth about $250 billion in the US, plus there are significant industries in other countries including Germany, Japan, South Korea, Brazil and China. And the industry is changing with emerging markets showing the most growth. There are also new technologies being developed to improve safety, efficiency, and to protect the environment. Meanwhile, the industry continues to consolidate through mergers and acquisitions. This all shows that, like cars themselves, auto industry news moves fast. But you can get an edge by signing up for the free daily news digest from Wiser.
