Strategic consultation and narrative development for Hyundai across the ASEAN region

Identifying anxiety around EV adoption as the main challenge for communications to tackle, Hyundai Motor Asia Pacific Headquarter) entrusted Klikpr to design specific and targeted PR narratives and campaigns to answer concerns toward range, charging infrastructure, and more. The agency had to have the capacity to craft strategic umbrella narratives aimed at strengthening the company’s positioning and mindshare as the leading mobility innovator in the region. At the same time, these umbrella narratives had to be broad enough to be paired with local insights, repurposed and broken down for use in individual markets across ASEAN. The agency was also tasked with building relationships with region-wide media.
