Hyundai Launches New Bold Marketing Campaign, a Push for Electric Vehicles

The ad with Hyundai Ioniq 5, 5N, and 6 will air during events like Olympics and NBA playoffs

Hyundai has introduced an engaging new marketing strategy aimed at promoting its electric vehicle (EV) lineup. The Korean brand is seeking to attract consumers interested in making the transition to EVs.

With the IONIQ 5, IONIQ 5 N, IONIQ 6, and Kona Electric in the ad, the campaign uses attention-grabbing visuals to set itself apart from its past advertising efforts. Moreover, it includes a wide range of advertising placements, such as broadcast channels and social media platforms.

Eye-Catching Broadcast Clips

At the core of the campaign are a 60-second advertisement and two 30-second promotional clips for broadcast, premiering in mid-May. The company will air the ad throughout the summer during prominent events such as the Olympics, MLB games, and NBA playoffs. Furthermore, shorter 15- and 30-second spots will address typical EV problems, highlighting charging capabilities and driving range.

Angela Zepeda, chief marketing officer, Hyundai Motor America, said:

As we put a continued focus on our electrification business goals and our electric vehicle lineup, we wanted something that would stand out from all other advertising we have in-market. This campaign does just that with visuals, unlike anything we’ve done before.

While other companies are pulling back on their electrification strategy, we are continuing to reach the EV-curious buyer to show them the compelling design and technology Hyundai has to offer.
