Automotive Promotions of 2023!

Car promotions in high footfall locations enable brands to raise awareness of new models and engage with potential buyers

Trends in car promotions

According to the National Travel Survey 2021, 33% of households own two or more cars and in 2022, around 1.94 million vehicles were sold in the UK. With so many brands and car features for consumers to understand however, it is more important than ever for automotive brands to raise awareness of their different models and the features that differentiate them to consumers looking to purchase a new vehicle. 

Automotive promotions with car placements enable interested members of the public to see the models up close and ask any questions they have to knowledgeable brand ambassadors. SpaceandPeople have worked with a range of brands and local dealerships on a variety of automotive promotions in the last few months (both with car placements and without), particularly in the run up to the recent license plate release. We have seen an increase in electric vehicle promotions, which aligns with the facts that electric vehicle sales have gone up by around 30% in 2023 compared to last year.
