Virtual Product Launch – Vauxhall Mokka

  • Automotive
  • Virtual

Vauxhall launched the all new Mokka and Mokka-e in November 2020, and traditionally these product launches would be face-to-face events for the manufacturer and the dealer network, providing product orientation, brand and competitor analysis, test drives and an exciting reveal.

The audience numbers were around the 700 mark year to year but in 2020, Vauxhall needed an alternative solution.

New product – new experience

We worked with Vauxhall to design a solution, not a compromise. Embracing the power and reach of digital, the creative energy and storytelling potential of film, and a channel and audience neutral
approach, we helped bring the all new Mokka and Mokka e to life.

Through safe and secure procedures for presenters and crew alike we captured product films , and securely through a limited risk production to ensure we met the deadlines and achieved and exceeded the objectives.

Live broadcast experience

Using a secure webcasting platform, we broadcast a pre-recorded film, coupled with a live Q&A, to the entire dealer network – exponentially increasing audience size and reach. Engagement tracked through the platform shows that 83% of the audience watched for the entire duration of the live broadcast.

Distilling the core content into a broadcast friendly format and length, we also designed the product walkaround section for both internal and external channel usage, amplifying the content to CRM customers as a VIP preview experience, thereby increasing interest and pre-orders.

This approach delivered high feedback scores for each of the key messages, with an average score across all messages of 9.2/10. In addition, retailers commented, “Pure, bold, exciting, electric, future”, and The new Mokka electric will be a massive seller”.
