THE UNCONVENTIONAL AUTOMOTIVE CHALLENGER BRAND
Having launched just four years ago in the UK, CUPRA is the unconventional Automotive challenger brand that brings together emotion, electrification, and performance.
Encapsulating all of those sentiments is their latest model, the 100% electric CUPRA Born. Delivering a product launch campaign aimed at Corporate Decision Makers, ‘Feel the Impulse of the Next Generation’ was activated in June 2021. Its aim to aid model and brand awareness in the lead-up to the car’s launch in April 2022, whilst also capturing interest, engagement and commitments to order.
With an original target of securing 10% of the 2022 sales volume before start of sales, orders totalled over 27% of the full year target, 2.7 times the original objective in the first week of sales – this has since risen to over 50% within the first 2 months of sales.
‘FEEL THE IMPULSE OF THE NEXT GENERATION’…
…has also resulted in increased consideration of CUPRA as a brand, and firmly cemented CUPRA Born’s position as a bold, innovative choice for businesses opting to make their first steps on the road to zero emissions.
