Abstract

Examines strategic alliances recently cultivated by many multinational enterprises (MNEs) with foreign competitors, in particular the global automobile market. Discusses the marketing of hybrid automobiles with a focus on the role that brand name, country of origin, and the interaction between them play in strategic product positioning/marketing. Argues that marketers would do well to consider their target customers′ likely reaction to offshore production of a domestic brand or foreign branding of domestic goods.
