Ford Takes 2011 Fiesta Unpackaging High Tech

Posted by at 11:54 am on June 24, 2010

When 2011 Ford Fiesta owners pick up their new car, they’ll enjoy learning about it in a whole new way through the use of an interactive USB. In an Auto Maker first, ¬†Ford created the new delivery program for the Fiesta to make the initial owner experience unique.

The Fiesta delivery approach is different than anything Ford has ever done before. ¬† The Fiesta “unpackaging” experience is a new way for Ford and its dealers to interact with customers to bring their new vehicle to life. It has three major components, In the showroom, on the way home and at home.

In The Showroom

The experience kicks off with a short video featuring Fiesta Movement agents that is viewed on a kiosk located on the showroom floor. Following the video, consumers have their picture taken with their new ride, which is then uploaded to the Fiesta Community site.

On The Way Home

When in the car, the owner plugs the preloaded USB into the Fiesta that “unwraps” the car and helps owners explore all the cool features in their new car, all in nineteen minutes of infotainment-type audio. Topics ranging from push button start, to the sound-deadening windshield glass are covered.

At Home

Once they get home, the USB goes into their home computer and downloads a Fiesta Community app.
