In response, manufacturers had to rethink the way they would position, launch and market their products to remain relevant. With this in mind, a multinational automobile manufacturer set out to better understand the media uptake of their launches and Global Media Drives (GMDs), in which 250 media were invited to test drive a new vehicle.
