LEAF Advertising

Sun Apr 15, 2018 7:44 am

Watching the NBA playoffs yesterday, there were quite a few ads for the new LEAF. I don't really recall a lot of paid advertising for LEAF 1.0. This bodes well for how serious Nissan is about promoting the LEAF as a mass production EV in the US. Advertising during the playoffs isn't cheap, so to focus on only one car and an EV at that is a big deal. I would guess that the audience for the NBA playoffs isn't dominated by EV nerds.

Also, InsideEVs is reporting on some sort of a reveal today.

I saw an add for Leaf on some sports channel while I was eating in a restaurant yesterday (probably NBA playoffs, but was not paying attention). Nissan was also advertising other vehicles.

There was a normal prime time TV ad here, which I don't recall seeing since the Big Sales Push in 2013.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I've seen a 2018 LEAF ad on the Golf Channel several times now.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.
