Perception as an Innovator is crucial to the success of mobility transition
With everyone speaking about mobility trends, being perceived as an innovator is a clear competitive advantage. However, with the word/concept “innovation” saturating the market, companies cannot only rely on the communication of new models or designs in order to break through the noise.
Within the automotive industry, Tesla has become the epitome of innovation. The company substantially leads the rankings, leaving established and big brands behind.
Do other players need to take a page from Tesla’s playbook? Not necessarily. There are others who are enriching their brand essence with innovation, as well. Hyundai, for example, has been growing their market share in the USA, and receives the most positive attention for innovation.
Looking deeper into the communication of innovative carmakers, recommendations become clearer. Companies must continuously communicate a broad variety of topics: from models to technologies, strategic decisions and investments, and partnerships to moonshot projects.
