Strategic communications agency Telemetry today announces it was selected as the public relations agency of record for Los Angeles-based automotive manufacturer, Harbinger. Launched by Telemetry at the 2022 North American International Autoshow (NAIAS) in Detroit, Harbinger was founded with a mission to bring modernization and fresh thinking to a market poorly addressed by electrification through the manufacturing of Class 4 to Class 7 medium-duty trucks.
“Harbinger is arriving to a medium-duty industry that is starving for innovation, and we’re elated to have been chosen to help tell the Harbinger story,” said Telemetry President and Principal Craig Daitch.
Led by co-founders John Harris, Phillip Weicker, and Will Eberts, Harbinger’s team is composed of EV specialists with decades of experience across the automotive, aerospace, and battery technology industries. Harbinger has uniquely differentiated itself through engineering excellence, bringing to market:
A proprietary eAxle combines the motor, inverter, and gearbox into an integrated unit, improving energy efficiency, lowering cost, and bringing critical safety improvements by enabling the battery systems to be positioned entirely inside the frame.
A liquid-cooled battery pack engineered for superior performance, lower cost, and a supplier-agnostic sourcing strategy. The pack design also takes advantage of cutting-edge casting technology to provide improved battery durability, safety, and lifespan.
A new driver-focused chassis architecture designed to improve safety, driver experience, and productivity through drive-by-wire steering and enhancements to vehicle ergonomics. In addition, a novel front suspension reduces vehicle overhang, improving driver visibility and vehicle maneuverability.
At NAIAS, Telemetry used its automotive media knowledge and expertise to assist Harbinger with its debut to a global audience of automotive and technology media. “Mobility is rapidly evolving across all segments of the automotive industry,” said Daitch. “To be given the opportunity to rapidly accelerate awareness for one of the commercial trucking industry’s fastest-rising startups at the predominant showcase of all things automotive was an incredible team effort. Both Telemetry and Harbinger look to additional collaborations and can’t wait to share what’s next!”
When our client IAC Group asked us to help them develop an idea that would bring them awareness and media attention related to the return of the North American International Auto Show, we looked within the company to find our inspiration.
IAC is a leading global supplier of automotive components and systems. Their primary focus is interior innovations such as instrument panels, door trims, and headliners, working with OEMs such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, General Motors, and Ford to bring the interior vision they have for their makes and models to fruition.
IAC's purpose is to create environments that move you.
That elevation of the brand was the platform we used to develop what we simply referred to as "The Gown".
A Return to Elegance
It's been two years since we've seen the North American International Auto Show, and that includes the black-tie charity preview that occurs the Friday before the event opens to the public. The preview event has annually been presented as a lean-forward event, broadcast on Detroit's local ABC affiliate, WXYZ. It's as much a tradition as the show itself. With a focus on sustainability and electrification, we worked with IAC to develop a concept that aligned with the virtues of IAC - elegantly engineered, boldly executed, elevating the best in sustainable technology with precision and speed.
In repeating the brand pillars of IAC, it was evident that parallels could be made to the fashion industry. More so, fabrics and materials that were used in the manufacturing of the very interiors millions of people sit in daily could be used for garments and fashion. The gown was the perfect convergence of the automotive and fashion industries.
This insight was shared with our clients, who fully embraced the idea of designing a gown - IAC's Chief Administrative Officer created the original sketch and IAC's talented global teams - including engineering and industrial sewers helped bring the gown to fruition with unprecedented speed. Everything on the gown aligned with IAC - made from three sustainable materials and jewelry made from recycled ocean plastics. It was a monumental effort, but one where everyone was excited to have a place in participating.
A Lesson in Storytelling
The gown is a great example of client creativity while staying close to their core.
Creating a contextual Venn diagram between events (NAIAS and New York Fashion Week), purpose (Using sustainability as a pillar to design and create world-class auto interiors), and creativity (developing a gown made of sustainable automotive materials) is a winning combination for creating attention for your brand. The story is in the dress itself and we're grateful to have worked on this project.
We look forward to seeing Iwona wear the gown at the North American International Auto Show Charity Preview!
