Honda conveys efficiency at check out

Honda conveys efficiency at check out

With the launch of the new Honda CR-V, Honda decided to take a new approach to explaining the model’s fuel efficiency by placing a scale model on a continuously running grocery conveyor belt. Each car was mounted on the side of a grocery belt so that its wheels turned as the conveyor belt moved forward. On the divider bars, people would read the pay-off message, “With exceptional fuel economy, the CR-V keeps going.”

Why it matters

Showing is always better than telling, but explaining a benefit in a completely unexpected way makes it stick even more.  It helps to connect a product’s benefit to a more accessible concept (e.g. the never-stopping conveyor belt) to a more abstract idea of fuel efficiency.  What unforeseen analogous stories can you tell to help make your message stick?

Park circa is a new app which connects people in search of a parking space with people who currently don’t need theirs. Owners of a parking space can upload the location of their space and set a price as well as a schedule of when it’s available. Neighbours can then see if a parking space is available in their area.
