Admiral announces new insurance discount offered for electric cars

Cardiff, Wales (PRWEB UK) 19 May 2013

With no vehicle tax to be paid and a subsidy from the Government when you buy one, electric cars have never been so appealing. Now, one car insurance specialist is adding to the benefits of owning an electric car by offering a discount when insuring them.

Admiral is offering a discount of up to 10% for electric cars such as the Nissan Leaf and Peugeot iOn. The discount is available now and applies to new and used electric cars as a new customer.

Admiral managing director, Sue Longthorn, commented: “Electric cars are becoming more popular, with new models being launched all the time. The Government is boosting the growth in their popularity with grants towards purchasing electric cars and covering part of the cost of installing charging points for electric vehicles in garages and driveways, so we wanted to help encourage people to drive them by offering this discount.”

The discount will be automatically applied and included in the price the customer receives either directly from Admiral or on a price comparison site.

DrivingSales Announces the Most Valuable Insight of 2013 at Inaugural Presidents Club in New York City

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 29, 2013

DrivingSales today announced that Are You Aiming at the Right Target?, presented by Chris Reed, CMO of Cobalt, has been named the 2013 DrivingSales Most Valuable Insight. Reed received the award from DrivingSales CEO Jared Hamilton at the inaugural and sold-out Presidents Club event in New York City. The Most Valuable Insight competition, which was judged exclusively by dealer executives, was created by DrivingSales to foster the spirit of progress and thought leadership in the auto industry.

The Most Valuable Insight competition was one of the most inspirational and exciting segments of our exclusive Presidents Club event and full of forward-thinking and practical insights that our attendees can put into action in their dealerships almost immediately, said DrivingSales CEO Jared Hamilton. We are proud to congratulate our 2013 Most Valuable Insight award winner, Chris Reed of Cobalt, whose presentation on what dealers can learn through greater understanding of their Vehicle Detail Pages already has Presidents Club attendees reviewing their website data for new opportunities! I would also like to congratulate our runners-up – we have no doubt we will be hearing additional creative, profit-building insights from them in the future.

Reeds insight, based on an eight month Cobalt study of consumer engagement with online vehicle information including metrics, such as VDPs (Vehicle Detail Pages) and Time-on-VDP, revealed that vehicle engagement is the single best predictor of future sales, materially superior to other metrics commonly used by dealership marketing staff, such as visits and lead submissions. His presentation showed that vehicle engagement metrics provide insight into the effectiveness of a dealers offline, as well as online, marketing and can be predictive of the timing of a sale down to the VIN level. Reed also shared the pitfalls of relying on any single metric, including VDP views, to evaluate marketing performance, and the predictive power gained by evaluating the pattern of consumer interaction with content on dealer websites and online advertising in general.

As the winner of the Most Valuable Insight competition, Reed will have the opportunity to present the Cobalt data in much greater detail at the 2013 DrivingSales Executive Summit in October in Las Vegas.

Most Valuable Insight runners-up are (alphabetically by company) Capitalizing on Changes in Online Shopping Behaviors, presented by Scott Pechstein of Autobytel Inc.; Do You Know Todays Customer? New Findings Show Difference between Prices of Vehicles Shopped vs. Actual Prices Paid, presented by Scott Hernalsteen of AutoTrader.com, and Mobile: Your Key to Winning Shoppers when Theyre Ready to Buy, presented by Jack Simmons of Cars.com

For the DrivingSales Most Valuable Insight competition, industry professionals were asked to provide an insight derived from new research/data that would provide significant value to dealership executives. A dealer board selected finalists from a competitive field of submissions, and the finalists presented their insight onstage, in nine minutes each, at the Presidents Club event, with the winner selected by a dealer panel.

The Most Valuable Insight competition was part of a high-level line-up at the sold out 2013 DrivingSales Presidents Club that included keynotes from best selling author Seth Godin and business leaders from in- and outside the auto industry. Designed to help dealers build the strategies they need to adapt to a changing automotive retail market and to lead it the event brought together an elite audience of dealership principals and general managers and focused on the three foundational elements of successful dealership operations: Capital, Brand, and People.
