The first ever Prius Plug-in was going to ship late due to the tsunami. So how do you keep consumers engaged when it's going to be a year before they get the car they pre-ordered?
To keep them engaged and to draw in a larger audience within the target demographic, we commissioned 4 artists - Geoff McFetridge, HunterGatherer, Aaron de la Cruz, and Joshua Davis - to create custom decals. We also convened the most active Prius users and gave them the opportunity to create a decal.
We then shot a video with each artist talking about their work, their process, and the Prius Plug-In.
The project was successful in meeting its goal of keeping pre-orderers engaged as well as expanding the Prius audience. Pre-order customers can order the custom decals for their own cars.
