The competition among electric vehicles is just starting…

Here is a very recent commercial for the Nissan Leaf in U.S. featuring a trained polar bear. Obviously the only trained polar bear available… However, TBWA produced a really nice story dealing with the causes of the climate change which in this case force a polar bear to leave his natural environment. His journey takes him through typical scenes of American landscape (even the inner city) and lastly to a typical U.S. suburb where he finally encounters something he can relate to, something that may not be as truly natural as he is, but that respects nature and helps to preserve it – the Nissan Leaf.

While electric vehicles until today have been luxury goods such as the sporty Tesla Roadster or the little cheaper Prius and Honda Insight, the new EVs will hopefully be more affordable and more efficient. When critical volumes are reached, electric vehicles may even bring in more profit than their gas-powered brethren. It remains open when the final big bang comes and every manufacturer will have his EV on the road. As of today, Opel, Renault, GM, BMW and many more already have promising vehicles in the pipeline. And time is on their side. Day by day, technological advances are being accomplished: better batteries, faster charging, more charging stations, less weight, or completely new concepts such as the E-REVs Opel Ampera or the Chevy Volt.

We may not be able to imagine a world dominated by electric vehicles but the time will come.

And other than hybrids which usually take more gas than high-tech diesel engines, electric vehicles definately consume less.

One thing is for sure: this new segment will require large marketing budgets. Not only because the technologies require explanation. But as Nissan show its not only about tech stuff….

Have you ever used your printer in a way like this?

Using modern ways of marketing will bring you much more customers you intend. You don’t believe? Have you already seen the new „commercial“ of HP?

Please take the time to compare these two videos.

The first here, „Bathtub IV“ is by Keith Loutit and a perfect example of time-lapse and tilt-shift which results in a perfect stop-motion effect.

Then look at this current Telekom commercial which nicely makes use of this technique. Surprisingly modern for a telecommunications giant such as Deutsche Telekom:

It is not by accident that these two are so similar. Both have been created by Keith Loutit, a master of his craft!
