The Brand Objective

When the 2020 version of Kia Motors’ flagship sub-compact SUV - Kia Sonet - was launched, it comprised of five cutting-edge features that were new to the segment including a 26.03cm HD Touch Screen Navigation, ventilated seats, voice assistant, Bose speaker setup, and smart air purifier with virus protection. Kia Motors aimed to capture the mindshare of connected consumers by introducing them to the AI Voice Command feature – Hello, Kia. The feature provides drivers control over certain features of the car through voice commands, without the need of ever-switching their eyes off the road. Kia Motors partnered with InMobi for the promotion of Sonet’s AI Voice Command feature in a manner that would delight motorheads across the country.

Engaging via Interactive Full-screen Ads
 

The head-turning aspect of the ad campaign was the interactive experience. The full-screen interstitial ads brought the experience of the AI Voice Command to the primary device of connected consumers.

The ad starts with a simple instruction, to swipe the ad on the screen. The next three views of the ad are accessible on swiping and enable users to give a command, offering them a sneak-peek into the experience of the AI Voice Command in the new Kia Sonet.
 


The CTA ‘Learn More’ redirected users to the Kia Sonet product page on their website for more information. The live experience of how the voice command works helped users understand the convenient driving experience Kia Motors provides drivers with their ground-breaking technologies.
