“With our all-new Elantra and Elantra Eco in dealerships now, we are excited to be the first to team up with Amazon to give customers a tailored test-drive experience,” said Dean Evans, chief marketing officer, Hyundai Motor America. “We know people are looking for a new way to experience our vehicles, and with the convenience of Amazon’s Prime Now service, ‘Prime Now. Drive Now.’ is an innovative solution we are testing to modernize today’s automotive shopping experience.”
The “Prime Now. Drive Now.” program was conceived, orchestrated and executed via a collaboration between INNOCEAN Worldwide (Hyundai’s advertising agency of record), Canvas Worldwide (Hyundai’s media agency of record), Amazon Prime Now, and the Drive Shop (an engagement marketing agency) who will provide trained driving hosts to conduct the test drives.
“Hyundai is leaving no stone unturned in its pursuit to be a better car company,” said Tim Blett, Chief Operating Officer of INNOCEAN USA. “Not only is Hyundai dedicated to making better cars, it’s also innovating by offering a better Elantra test drive experience.”
“Hyundai’s brand is known for its obsession with making drivers’ lives better, while Amazon has revolutionized the retail experience. When you combine the two, you have a revolutionary way to test drive and purchase a Hyundai Elantra,” said Paul Woolmington, CEO of Canvas Worldwide. “The ‘Prime Now. Drive Now.’ program brings a new level of simplicity and convenience for Hyundai drivers.”
The program will be supported by an integrated digital campaign including digital video, digital advertising, SEO, SEM, and social. The digital advertisements will appear on Amazon.com and other premium U.S. websites.
