|Clarity in Labeling Would Help Sell Electric Cars
By: Doug Bedell
We seem almost to need a study to validate anything new and potentially valuable – but who reads studies? Clarity in labeling, as in the savings expected from hybrid and electric plug-in cars, would help, says a University of Kansas public affairs study. And so it likely would – why wouldn’t that be obvious from the start?
Total cost of owning a hybrid or electric plug-in car, including more than fuel costs, would be helpful, says the study. Remember that a baseline tenet of public relations is clarity of aim and objective. How many agencies, government or otherwise, spend enough time on the ramifications of what they’re trying to accomplish – and stating it clearly – before expecting to accomplish much?
