Amaron launches its brand mascot ‘Ron’
The Rons, with the glowing ‘A’ on their chest and surrounded by rings of energy, represent the tremendous power packed inside the All-New Amaron batteries.
Chennai, 5th July, 2022; Amaron, India’s leading automotive batteries brand, recently unveiled their mascot – Th e Ron. And there’s not just one Ron; there are many of them, each representing energy in its powerful, modern and sustainable form. Launched to coincide with the All-New Amaron batteries, The Rons have become a trail blazer for the automotive batteries industry, which has, till now, not been known for using brand mascots.
A futuristic figure created in Amaron’s green brand colour scheme, the Rons, with a glowing ‘A’ on their chest signify the tremendous energy at the heart of the All-New Amaron. With digital screens for faces, Rons are ca pable of displaying emoticons, GIFs and more. Rons are surrounded by rings of energy, representing the treme ndous power packed inside the All-New Amaron batteries.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that energy now has a face you can recognise – Rons. With Brand Amaron pushing the boundaries of its markets, the launch of a mascot seems the ideal step to take, to help bring the bra nd to global markets.
This is a marked change in how the industry interacts with consumers. Mascots create an emotional connect wi th people, and become indelibly etched in their memory, as they come to represent the brand over time. It is a major step forward for how the industry looks to engage with consumers and stakeholders alike.
Speaking about the launch of Ron, Mr Jayadev Galla, Chairman and Managing Director, Amara Raja Batteries Li mited, said “We had always planned to launch a brand mascot and were waiting for the right opportunity. Brand ambas sadors and celebrities are valuable, but they don’t become uniquely identifiable with a brand for extended periods. A ma scot is timeless and unique. And this is the right time to introduce the Rons, with Amaron expanding not just across India, but into international markets. As we launch the All-New Amaron batteries, We expect our Rons to bring global recogn isability to Amaron over time”
The mascot was created by the Design Cell at Ogilvy India. Speaking about the project, Sujoy Roy, Executive Cre ative Director, said “We worked on the Rons for over a year, trying to create the ideal mascot. We didn’t want to go the way of typical cereal mascots, or simplistic human figures, or animals. Amaron needed a mascot that did justice to the brand’s evolution and expansion – something stylish, modern, and truly 21st-century, representative of Amaron’s core promise of energy that lasts long, really long.”
With the nation returning to the roads in a major way after the cha llenges of the pandemic, this is an exciting ti me for the automotive battery industry. Very soon, Rons will dot the nation’s landscape, a nd become the face of energy.
