Mobility is changing faster than anyone could have predicted. We’re all on a journey to an electrified, connected and increasingly autonomous future
The vehicles we drive, the way we own them, the way we use them, even the roads we use them on.
Everything is changing. And it is changing fast.
We need to make sense of it all. We need to understand how this world fits together.
If you are developing and manufacturing vehicles or the advanced technologies that go into them.
If you are providing a service, or infrastructure, or providing power to charge electric vehicles.
If you are a government or government agency planning smart cities or smart grids to accommodate and facilitate this rapid transformation.
You need to tell the right stories to the right people. You need to tell your customers why what you do matters, in engaging ways that they will understand.
You need to help them make sense of the world that’s changing around them.

Influence is a pioneer in communicating electromobility. When our sister agency Influence Associates was created 12 years ago our founding clients were a NASDAQ listed lithium-ion battery company and a Norwegian electric vehicle manufacturer.
Since then we have gone on to work for the likes of Tesla, helped launch Volvo’s first EV and played a key role in electric motorsport, as well as defining, communicating and building the brands of countless global e-mobility technology companies. With the rapid acceleration of electrification now is the time to leverage this expertise and give it purpose, in a sibling agency entirely dedicated to promoting and advancing emobility and the technologies transforming our industry and world.
Our wealth of experience has given us a deep understanding of the technologies, its place in society and the broader media landscape. This combined knowledge enables us to ensure that our client’s messages and brand gets cut-through in an evermore crowded and competitive sector.
We believe in the future of mobility. An exciting electrified future.
