London: Honda Motor Europe has appointed global marketing and technology agency LBi to revamp its online customer experience across multiple European territories.

Following a competitive pitch process, the agency has been selected to relaunch Honda's online presence in 22 markets across Europe. LBi's unique blend of strategy, creativity, technology and user-experience will be harnessed to deliver a state-of-the-art customer engagement platform that will help equip Honda for its digital future.    

The twelve-month strategic partnership will see LBi and Honda's teams work in close collaboration to devise and implement a user-centric, technologically advanced and visually stunning digital experience that will allow customers to engage with the Honda product range spanning cars, motorbikes and power equipment.   

The customer engagement platform will feature a number of next generation digital tools aimed at engaging and empowering consumers in the decision-making cycle.
