Lexicon has hired four interns from diverse backgrounds to create a two-month think tank on the branding of the automotive future - an industry that is on the cusp of experiencing seismic shifts.
Lexicon Branding was founded in 1982 with a single mission: To create extraordinary brand names. Names that get attention, names that generate interest, and names that tell the relevant consumer something new. Over the past three-plus decades, we have introduced such category-changing brand names like Swiffer, Pentium, Febreze, BlackBerry, Dasani, and Sonos into the marketplace. Lexicon has also established itself as a leading voice in brand-naming in the automotive space with Outback and Forester for Subaru, RidgeLine for Honda, Scion for Toyota, OnStar for GM, and Metris for Mercedes.

With the advent of the era of autonomous cars and other innovations, the automotive industry is in rapid flux. It is expected that consumer autonomous vehicles will be on the road by the year 2020. Ridesharing apps such as Uber and Lyft -- and now Maven from GM -- are already revolutionizing the way people get around and are driving innovation in a historic way. The future is being formed now.
