USE OF ADVERTISING AND MARKETING INCENTIVES TO PROMOTE SALES OF FUEL EFFICIENT VEHICLES. PART I: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The study illuminates how consumer acceptance of fuel-efficient automobiles is influenced by advertising and incentives. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wishes to use the study to become more knowledgeable about the use and effectiveness of these tools in marketing automobiles, particularly fuel-efficient vehicles. The purpose of the study is to develop a basis for understanding the strengths and limitations of these marketing tools. The objectives of the project were accomplished through the performance of a series of tasks. The tasks included a comprehensive literature review, the development of advertising and incentive typologies or evaluation frameworks, an evaluation of the effectiveness of advertising and promotion in the marketing of fuel-efficient cars, and the identification and description of methods to measure the effectiveness of advertising and promotion in promoting fuel efficiency as an attribute. The executive summary provides a description of the objectives of the study, major findings and conclusions.
