Providing Data-Backed Insights on the Wholesale and Used-Vehicle Markets

Manheim delivers the world’s largest wholesale marketplace through a network of 111 physical, digital and mobile auction locations with 650+ digital lanes, serving more than 80,000 dealers. Every year, 8 million vehicles are offered for sale to dealers, and Manheim facilitates used-car transactions representing nearly $80 billion in value.

The Cox Automotive Economic and Industry Insights team analyzes the trove of data from Manheim transactions through the wide lens of additional data available across Cox Automotive to offer thoughtful analyses on the used wholesale and retail markets.


Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index (MUVVI): An industry benchmark, the MUVVI is a measurement of wholesale used-vehicle prices that is independent of underlying shifts in the characteristics of vehicles being sold. Published on the fifth business day of each month, the MUVVI serves as an early indicator of what will be seen in the retail used market. See the full Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index.
