Challenge

BMW wanted to raise awareness with buyers of both the breadth and efficiency of its extensive range of plug-in hybrid models – positioning itself as a technology leader in the sector, with a car for every driver and need.

 

Idea

We knew that trying to explain the breadth and complexities of BMW’s plug-in hybrid line-up in one go wouldn’t make for great content. We needed a hero.

Luckily, we had one in the BMW 330e which had just received a 4.5-star Autocar review, with What Car? naming it the best Executive Car and best Plug-in Hybrid in the 2020 What Car? Awards.

We built on this expert editorial endorsement by putting BMW’s star model – a lynchpin of its PHEV line-up – into the hands of premium saloon intenders from our audience for the ultimate peer-to-peer validation.

After experiencing the BMW 330e’s electric refinement and charged up performance at Goodwood, their verdict was clear: it had all the benefits of a plug-in hybrid, without losing BMW’s premium performance wow factor.

Once we’d introduced BMW’s no-compromise PHEV technology, our hero video was backed up by native stories and social content that went more in-depth with a model-by-model guide to BMW’s plug-in hybrid range.
