Client: Torqeedo

Positioning Torqeedo as number one

For five years we worked with pioneering and innovative leading electric propulsion company Torqeedo

The Challenge

Five years ago, the challenge was to convince UK consumers that electric propulsion offered both performance and environmental benefits. With a step change in awareness of the benefits of choosing electric, the challenge has been to continue to position Torqeedo as the number one brand in an increasingly competitive sector.
