Green Cars Earn Money

While the Green Car of the Year award gets more atten­tion at the LA Auto Show, the Nielsen award is sig­nif­i­cant for mar­ket­ing these vehi­cles. Recent Nielsen research shows that green mar­ket­ing by automak­ers effec­tive­ly dri­ves cus­tomers to the show­room. Accord­ing to the sur­vey of near­ly 2,600 con­sumers, the impact of green adver­tis­ing on pur­chase con­sid­er­a­tion was 20% high­er among con­sumers com­pared to 2011. Envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly fea­tures are also gain­ing steam. Anoth­er sig­nif­i­cant find­ing from the study – 76% of con­sumers inter­viewed said that high fuel effi­cien­cy and MPG is some­thing a vehi­cle must have to be con­sid­ered for pur­chase.

Ford, Hon­da, Toy­ota, Chevro­let and Nis­san have tak­en these ideas to heart, the com­pa­ny says, and are now final­ists for the third annu­al Nielsen Auto­mo­tive Green Mar­keter of the Year award. Rec­og­niz­ing the brand that made the great­est strides to both gain con­sumer aware­ness and pos­i­tive­ly impact con­sumer per­cep­tions around the auto­mo­tive industry’s envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly ini­tia­tives, the award will be pre­sent­ed at the LA Auto Show on Novem­ber 29.
