Drive participation in EV programs and rebates with a content marketing strategy
As electric vehicle demand continues to grow, energy utilities benefit from serving as a trusted resource and EV adoption influencer. Customers have many questions and concerns about electric vehicles, and your energy utility has an opportunity to guide them on a successful journey. Questline’s Electric Vehicles Content empowers energy utilities to meet their program goals and help business and residential customers reach their EV destination.
Why our Electric Vehicles Content works:
- Our content strategy helps your energy utility reach key EV customer segments to maximize the impact of your communications.
- This unique solution helps you to understand why your customers are interested in EVs, along with their questions and concerns.
- Your customers want your guidance. In fact, 42% of consumers said the involvement or endorsement of their energy utility would influence their adoption of new technologies like EVs.
There are more than 1 million EVs on the road today. EVs are expected to reach cost parity with gasoline-powered vehicles by 2025, according to SECC.
EV success starts with segmentation
Based on utility customer segments developed by the Smart Energy Consumer Collaborative, Questline has created a roadmap for energy utilities to reach the right customers with the right message:
|Customer segments||Perspectives||Key demographics|
|Green Champions||“EVs fit our eco-friendly lifestyle.”||Youngest, more likely to be college-educated|
|Savings Seekers||“How can an EV save us money?”||Young, more likely to be college-educated|
|Technology Cautious||“We want to use energy wisely, but are apprehensive about new technologies.”||More likely homeowners and older in age|
|Movers & Shakers||“Smart energy technologies impress us.”||More likely middle-aged with higher income|
|Business Navigators||“We want to know how EVs can help our business.”||Municipal, small and large businesses with fleet vehicles or charging needs|
