New Leaf Commercial

Fri Jul 12, 2019 1:00 pm

Notice this one also features women. Looks like Nissan is trying to change the gender dynamics of Electric car buyers. Good for them.

The ad seems to be targeted more at Japanese and European women.

The only 2 good commercials they've made for LEAF were the original "polar bear" ad, and the even better "what if everything ran on gasoline" ad. It's been half-hearted junk ever since.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

This ad has been airing a bunch on TV here in Nor Cal.

https://adage.com/article/cmo-strategy/ ... gn/2174271 has the same ad but a bit more background info. I wonder how effective this will be in increase or maintaining US Leaf sales given that Tesla is decimating all other EVs/PHEVs in the US in terms of sales.

There are a number of new commercials hitting the airwaves in Europe.

I also continue to see the Leaf on the TV here in Chicago. Saw Leaf commercials during a cubs game which I thought was interesting.

Leaf does have a window this year to nab a few sales while Hyundai/Kia does not yet have nationwide distribution or enough cars. Most of the other EVs are not really available out side the coasts (except Tesla). There are a segment of buyers also not yet comfortable with the Tesla sales model.

India, Australia, Thailand, Philippines all also launching:launched the Leaf, so curious if even Nissan will have the cars to meet demand.

I saw some articles from New Zealand talking about charging standard and as they get most of their used cars from Japan, and that includes an increasing supply of Leaf/Chademo cars.
