The Challenge

Total new-vehicle sales in the U.S. automotive industry are climbing and are projected to increase by 9% during the next 2 years. In fact, consumer spending on new vehicles is equal to pre-recession levels. The number of new-vehicle launches is also at an unprecedented level. To take advantage of this upward trend, print, television, and digital media need to consider their organization’s state of readiness:

  • Are you getting your fair share of the increased automotive ad spending?
  • Are the insights you share with automotive clients provocative enough to open the door for a conversation with key decision-makers?
  • Does your team have the ability to confidently communicate the emerging automotive trends that impact their target audience?
  • Do you have a compelling case to secure a client’s advertising investment?

The Solution

The J.D. Power Automotive Consumer InsightsSM (ACI) offer a strategic solution to synthesizing automotive shopper and buyer behavior data among five key demographics: Women, Men, Gen Y, Gen X and Boomers. This level of tangible data and analysis collected from tens of thousands of new-vehicle buyers—not available through any other credible source—allows you to understand:

  • The vehicle ownership experience
  • The features/options owners purchased and desire on their new vehicle
  • Shopping behavior, including the use of digital information in the shopping process
  • New-vehicle driver’s media consumption, personas, and automotive attitudes
  • Customers’ satisfaction with their retail and service experiences with dealers
