The hybrid relay
The search for information when deciding on a car purchase is increasingly digital. In our Hybrid relay concept for Toyota, test drivers drove a Toyota hybrid and documented their experience on social media.
The concept was based on a competition where the test driver who got the most likes and views on their posts won a brand new Toyota hybrid. And for anyone who was considering buying a Toyota, the posts gave an honest representation of how it actually is to drive and own a hybrid.
On the campaign site, one could follow both individual cars, test drivers and see the all the competitors Instagram, Youtube, Twitter and other social media posts. In addition, one could of course read more about Toyota’s hybrid models with price, performance, equipment and so forth.
