The Roadie” Portable EV Charging System Business Studies Assignment

Note: any item highlighted in yellow is my input/request to the writer, and the remaining are from
the instructor
The new product or service which I want the writer to discuss is the use of personal mobile
charges for electrical vehicles (EV’s) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which can be handled by any EV
owner. (example open the link: SparkCharge Introduces ‘The Roadie’ Portable EV Charging System
(insideevs.com)).
There is an increasing demand for the use of electrical cars in UAE and the current infrastructure for
charging the same is either not sufficient or is time-consuming due to long queue, and to address the
need for charging EV’s especially for owners residing in apartments,
Using the SOSTAC planning framework (Smith and Taylor), write an integrated marketing
communications campaign based on launching a new product or service (the personal mobile EV
charger) for a company of your choice (SparkCharge) based in the UAE.
