  2. 2. REVA is the new REVA-lution • It isn’t just a car, it’s a new concept, a new way of life- that of the future. • Quality matters more than the cost
  3. 3. The story thus far… • The Reva Electrical Car Company (RECC, founded in 1994by Chetan Maini, as a joint venture between the Maini Group of Bangalore and Amerigon Electric Vehicle Technologies (USA) • In 2001 Reva was launched by RECC. • Mahindra acquired Reva in May 2010. • It was positioned as a ‘green’, affordable car and aimed at young and elderly couples and women. It was predicted to sell 1500 cars during the launch. However the numbers fell short to just 300 cars. • There are more than 1000 Reva customers.
  4. 4. Old campaigns… • Mahindra Reva previously, came up with a digital campaign, Think and Ask. • The customers uploaded videos starring themselves and their friends posing questions about e-cars. • Creating and sharing these videos enabled the participants the chance to win a new Reva e20. • With increasing number of questions, the features of the car was revealed. • More than 20,000 questions were asked.
  5. 5. The new campaign addresses… • Battery power and efficiency: viewed as cumbersome • Negative price positioning: seen as too expensive, not enough value for money • Customer value: Customer should feel their purchase is meaningful towards themselves and the environment
  6. 6. REVA-lution A musical concert- PR campaign tool Emphasises revolution in the way we use the car highlighting its eco-friendly features. The entire concert is powered by the batteries of the REVA cars
  7. 7. REVA-lution happens… • REVA-lution is a musical concert show that is lit by the battery of Mahindra Reva cars • The concert stars Indian leading playback singer Shreya Ghoshal • Mahindra Reva cars are lined up and piled in the back drop. Direct connections are taken from the cars to show that the batteries are used to light the instruments. • Free tickets are provided for the customers • Timely feedback taken from other viewers
  8. 8. We are seeking to cover… • Primary objective- Brand retention and Visibility Concert counters the negative image about the car batteries’ powerfulness. Reva’s uniqueness as a green electric car is re- emphasised Reva’s position as a quality alternative to fuel burning cars is also emphasised
