Presented by IHS Automotive, the Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are based on actual model year purchase/lease activity and recognizes manufacturers for superior performance in owner retention – a critical aspect of building and maintaining market share.
Owners had such a positive overall experience that they came back to buy another vehicle of the same model, make, or manufacturer. The Polk Automotive Loyalty Awards are the only fact-based awards in the industry based on owner loyalty. Awards are based on actual consumer transactions to determine the winners and information obtained from state registration and lease transaction information.
During the 2013 Model Year, over 25 new vehicles were launched, more than 115 vehicle platforms were refreshed or redesigned and over 7.4 million* households came back into the market to purchase a new vehicle. Find out which OEMs were best able to retain their customer base and which were best able to conquest from their competitors.
We are excited to announce this year's event will have a new format and a couple of new awards.
*Number of returning households is based on the Polk household loyalty methodology and assumes one household per return to market.
