Ford has won the YouGov automotive Advert of the Month for June, after increasing Ad Awareness scores by 2.2 points in a month.

The Advert of the Month is awarded to the brand that registers the most significant increase in Ad Awareness scores on a month-over-month basis. Ford had an Ad Awareness score of 9.4 on May 26, which had risen to 11.8 as of June 24.

The source of the increase is driven by an advert for the All-electric Mustang Mach-E called ‘Watch Me’, which stars a young woman driving the vehicle while lip-syncing to James Brown’s famous 1970s song Super Bad.

After the release of the TV advert in the middle of May, the Ad Awareness score of Ford peaked on June 23 at 12.2 before moving a few decimal points lower the following day.

Ford is in a highly competitive space and capturing the imagination of the new customers, is, an important advertising goal, as the economy is opening up. Automotive brands can make better data-driven planning with the use of YouGov data about consumer perceptions.
