To promote the U.S. launch of the all-electric LEAF, George P. Johnson called upon us to develop the strategic creative for Nissan LEAF Zero Emission Tour. This 22-city nationwide tour gave drivers, media, civic partners, businesses, and students access to the world’s only existing prototype Nissan LEAF, as well as information about the benefits of zero-emission driving. The tour also helped Nissan make successful pitches to municipalities and utility commissions around North America in support of eco-friendly infrastructure.
Cost constraints and tour infrastructure requirements necessitated creative solutions. Big splashy graphics on a mobile billboard grabbed the public’s attention while a state-of-the-art charging station provided an introduction to the concept of an electric vehicle Level 2 car charger. Additional interactive installations helped overcome consumer “range anxiety,” a common concern of potential buyers.
