The future is green, says Volvo

The future is green, says Volvo
Beautiful ceremony honours plug-in hybrid

On Sunday, March 1, South Africa’s elite attended the Veuve Clicquot Polo Series Invitational held at Val de Vie Estate in Paarl. The chic event also presented an opportunity to celebrate the fourth birthday of the arrival of the luxurious Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid (PHEV) in South Africa.

The Veuve Clicquot Polo Series Invitational was hosted by the glamorous Nomzamo Mbatha and attended by celebrities, business figures, socialites and some of the country’s best polo players. Guests enjoyed Veuve Clicquot on tap and danced to music by Shekinah.

Luxury Swedish car brand and Val de Vie’s official vehicle partner, Volvo entertained guests with unique light installation aimed to encourage guests to “take the first step” towards making the planet more sustainable.

Toward the end of the afternoon, the company invited guests to contemplate the importance of green initiatives with them by means of a beautifully crafted ceremony.

Prominent Cape Town-based ballerina, Katherine Anderson, was seen dancing through the assembled guests, inviting all to exit onto the splendid patio. There, to the accompaniment of music specially crafted around a recording of Volvo’s eco-inspired pledges, celebrity TV personalities and Volvo brand ambassadors Jessica Nkosi and Thapelo Mokoena arrived chauffeured by two silent Volvo XC90 T8s driving in pure electric mode.

“In Sweden, there is a tradition that is enacted every afternoon where friends and loved ones join over something small to eat,” says Volvo’s head of marketing and communications, Charmagne Mavudzi. “It is a moment of self-reflection and connection. The Swedes call this special time fika.”

Still practised at Volvo’s headquarters in Sweden daily, guests were honoured to be led through their own fika moment. While enjoying spekboom-infused cinnamon buns created by SA’s own celebrity chef Rueben Riffel, guests were called to contemplate their roles in humanity’s new green challenge.

“There is no question that the environment in which we live is demanding a change from us,” notes Mavudzi. “How, in the presence of friends new and old, are we as individuals to participate in this process?”

Sporting an emissions output of only 49 g/km, a pure-electric range of up to 44km and having been voted 2019’s Best Electrified Seven-Seater at the Driving Electric Awards, the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine PHEV is tangible proof of Volvo’s go-green message. “This message is being welcomed with open arms, both locally and across the world, by eco-aware motorists,” concludes Mavudzi.( Ref:https://motorpress.co.za/articles/!/the-future-is-green-says-volvo-2https://motorpress.co.za/articles/!/the-future-is-green-says-volvo-2)

7 Ways Dealerships Can Drive Sales Online

  1. Facebook Marketing
    Facebook is still one of the most widely used social media platforms – and for very good reason. You can target your consumers with tailored ads, links to your website, and sponsored content. For car dealerships, this could create a broader network of customers thanks to your existing client base sharing, liking and commenting on your content.
  2. Twitter Updates
    Unlike Facebook that relies on longer, more detailed posts to drive traffic, Twitter is a one-stop news and events platform that keeps your audience updated on your sales, events and news. Have a vehicle auction coming up? Tweet about it! More often than not, your audience will remember those short bits of information instead of simply scrolling past.
  3. The Power of Instagram
    Instagram might just be the best platform to target new and young drivers. You can create a narrative for your brand that’s transparent, engaging and customer-centric. While you might not sell thousands of cars through Instagram, you can build a reliable and interested audience that’s more likely to come to your dealership than your competitors’.
  4. YouTube Videos
    Video marketing has and always will be a highly effective way of getting your brand’s message across. This is because it doesn’t require your readers or followers to focus for extended periods of time. A vehicle review of a new model could make an incredible impact on a customer that isn’t quite sure about your brand yet. Having high-quality videos and content shows that you not only care about vehicle sales, but you also care about keeping your clients and followers engaged and informed.
  5. Use High-Quality Imagery
    Nothing puts a potential customer off faster than low-quality and shoddy photography. You could have fantastic products and customer services, but if the photos you show on your website or social media aren’t up to par, you could be losing out on dozens of potential buyers. Remember, for many of these customers, your online presence is the only interaction that they’ve had with you.
  6. Create a Dialogue with Your Clients
    Allow your customers to not only read or view your content but also interact and engage with it. They should be able to share, review, and critique the content that you share. This lets them know that you’re not simply pushing a product, but actually opening the door for feedback and conversation between you and your valued customers.
  7. Take Reviews to Heart
    People care about what others think. Word of mouse could make or break your brand. Positive reviews from customers create a sense of authority and trust, whereas negative reviews could turn away the majority of your business. Even negative publicity could be valuable if you can show that you’re willing to resolve issues, apologise or rectify any problems you encounter.
