Sample Eco-Car Pro Trends

Each Eco-Car PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online eco-car articles, videos and images. Examples:

Marketing Whimsicality Consumers respond to brands that bring fantasy to life Implications - Today's hyper-digital world has made advertising feel like a constant bombardment; as a result, many brands have adopted a humorous, self-aware approach to marketing. However, consumers still want to be surprised and delighted. Brands that use their influence to enchant audiences by turning fantasy into reality are able to engage consumers with collective feelings of wonderment. This approach disassociates advertising from the act of "selling," and instead positions brands as benevolent superpowers.

Heartfelt Flashback Brands engage consumers emotionally by referencing the passing of time Implications - In an intriguing application of emotional marketing, brands are using nostalgia-charged montage commercials that sentimentally reference the passing of time to communicate their trustworthiness. By establishing themselves as longstanding catalysts in such periods of change, brands are able to connect with consumers, who in turn are able to access their own personal relationship with the product or service and how it has changed over time.

Musical Nostalgia Music manufacturers focus on vintage motifs for consumers seeking authenticity Implications - Musical instruments are beginning to feature increasingly vintage motifs that replace modern, high-tech layouts with old school designs and features. Aside from romanticizing and referencing the history of music production, vintage styled products are also indicative of a consumer preference for authenticity.

Accommodated Accessibility Wheelchair designs are updated for more dynamic use Implications - Many wheelchairs are stiff and unsympathetic to the fact that their users are confined to their seat. In the interest of increasing both comfort and mobility, many wheelchair companies have updated their designs to offer greater customization. The ability to modify according to preference empowers disabled people to navigate the world around them with ease and convenience.

Auto Autonomy Consumers search for digital aids when purchasing vehicles Implications - The Internet has allowed consumers to be more well-informed than ever when it comes to making big purchasing decisions. As a result, the automotive sector is working with, rather than against, the changing tide of retail. By implementing online and digital platforms into the purchasing process, auto companies are not only recognizing that consumers are more knowledgeable, but also working towards making them more autonomous.

Approachable Automotive The automotive industry aims to be more consumer-friendly Implications - Purchasing a car can be a daunting process, a fact that automotive retailers and dealerships know very well. In an attempt to come across as less intimidating, many auto companies are taking steps such as downsizing facilities or offering alternate forms of communication to consumers. By instilling confidence in the consumer, these measures make the purchasing process easier for all.

Outsourced Communication Modern technology links users with automated conversational tools Implications - The increasing irregularity of in-person communication stemming from tech tools is intensifying with the outsourcing of social tasks. For digital natives, eliminating the need for one-on-one contact is appealing, as many young people prefer online conversations instead of face-to-face exchanges.
