With the official Indian market introduction of the Nano mini car, Tata have launched their advertising and online campaign.

As it needs to reach many million customers across India, some of which have not owned a car before, the campaign is centered around being informative and offers a lot of opportunities for consumer feedback. It is focused around the “useability” of the Nano in everyday Indian life, wether it is fitting a big family inside the car without any compromises or safety aspects.

Noteworthy is the fact that Tata intelligently combines other sectors of their business with this launch. On the website you can book a car directly linked to different banking schemes from the biggest Indian banks (incl. Tata owned ones). Furthermore you can purchase or win a Tata Indicom NANO mobile phone (with phone scheme) and buy a Titan (Tata Watch company) NANO watch.

It is going to be interesting to see how this campaign evolves and how Indian consumers will react to it.

BMW US: Rampenfest – BMW 1-series Viral campaign*

27 06 2008

Now here is what I call a really funny viral campaign (maybe because I live in Germany ;o)….

Some of you might already know this one, but for those who don’t…for the introduction of the BMW 1-series in North America, BMW US have created a fully integrated viral campaign.

The story line is really funny. The little (fake) Bavarian town Oberpfaffelnbachen is building a 454 meter-high ramp that will launch the BMW 135i over the European landscape and across the Atlantic into the US. To have the world participate Jeff Schultz (fake) documentary filmmaker produced a 30 min film (www.rampenfest.com).

Here is the trailer…

The campaign is integrated across a number of channels beginning with the official Rampenfest Film Website, the offical Oberpfaffelbachen town website that feat. the MISS RAMPENFEST Competition, Jeff Schultz’s Facebook site (with approx 800 friends) and his blog.

Also worth seeing are Jeff’s Youtube page and the Friendster page of Franz Brendl the Oberpfaffelbachen town’s council.

BMW: GINA Light Visionary Concept*

15 06 2008

A few days back BMW have revealed there new vision of a light weight car. The GINA Light Visionary Concept is dislayed at the new BMW Museum in Munich.

It is a two seater roadster concept where all of the sheet metal that you regularly find in production cars has been replaced with flexible, highly durable fabric material that stretches across the whole vehicle.

This fabric is controlled by electro-hydraulics and with that changes the outer skin design of the vehicle at a touch of a button. Wether it is the hood opening and revealing the engine or the way the headlamps are revealed when flicking on the headlight switch (looks a bit like a character from the PIXAR Movie “CARS”).

BMW have captured the details of the concepts in a number of short films produced for BMW-TV. Interestingly the style of these films remind me of the Studio Stories that GM have produced for their latest concept.

Video: BMW GINA Concept Teaser – 1:01 min

Video: BMW GINA Concept: Design – 3:20 min

Video: BMW GINA Concept: Premiere – 2:54 min

I really like the execution of the concept car…BMW have made sure that the effect comes through on some of the key vehicle features. Definitly more impressive than the M1 Anniversary Concept they presented a few weeks back.
