New Ford TVC built on change as a wonderful thing

NEW DELHI: Ford India has launched a new campaign to unveil the new avatar of its car Ford Figo, embodying the philosophy of ‘Change is a Wonderful Thing‘.


The campaign showcases the new Ford Figo as a compelling blend of style, performance and value-for-money with newly enhanced features.


The 360 degree brand campaign runs across television, radio, print, Below-The-Line activation, online and mobile media nationally.


The television commercial communicates the launch of the New Ford Figo while retaining its well-established proposition of "Bursting with Substance". It begins by showcasing a recently married couple at the mall, shopping for groceries. The wife complains about managing everything in the house and the husband not changing after marriage. He is either focused on friends or office work leaving little time for them. While she complains, there is a call on the Bluetooth audio system of the Figo from a hotel confirming the husband‘s reservation for a candlelight dinner.


The wife is pleasantly surprised at this gesture by her husband. The campaign thus exemplifies the ethos of ‘Change is a Wonderful Thing‘ not only in human relationships but also the relationship you have with one‘s car.


While chronicling the couple‘s experiences with the new Ford Figo in everyday use, the commercial focuses on the new smart features such as its best in class space and an agile well-engineered steering. The clutter-free and easy to use Bluetooth technology in the new Ford Figo is showcased by the effortless manner in which the couple is able to attend calls while driving.


Ford has also built a virtual test drive experience on mobile & tablets and used the technique of geo-fencing Ford dealerships in select cities which will push new Figo specific communication to users when they are within a 5 km radius.


"The customer has evolved and Figo has evolved with them. We are going further to offer our customers the best in technology, styling and performance with the launch of the new Ford Figo. We are committed to delivering high quality products that our customers want and value," said Anurag Mehrotra, Vice President, marketing, sales and service, Ford India.


"Our target customer is a recently married 25-28 year old male. The new advertising campaign draws from the experiences that all recently married couples go through where the duality of the life-stage reflects a step change for them. Also, given that 60% of all Figo customers are first time car buyers, and they want the world to recognise this change in their life. And finally, the styling and performance changes in the Figo. Through the commercial we are establishing that Change is a Wonderful Thing - be it in your life-stage, your choice to buy your first car or even the changes made in the Figo", he further added.


"The philosophy and the inspiration for this campaign came from the very essence of Ford - a dynamic brand, constantly looking to ‘Go Further‘ to excite customers. Ford has been an integral part of our customers‘ lives and we wanted to capture one of the many memorable moments that define a positive change in their lives. By focusing on its smart technology, best in class features and improved looks, this campaign aims to make the customers experience a wave of change with the new Ford Figo," added Vijay Simha, executive creative director, Global Team Ford.


"Many of our customers are first time car buyers. They are entering the category; their aspirations and dreams of owning a car is coming true, that‘s a very significant moment. In their own lives they are experiencing ‘wonderful‘ change, from being single to married, becoming a parent, enjoying setting up their own home and so on. Our insights about change come from here and it is will connect with people as it is true about their lives. The new Figo comes in at this point and adds to their celebration of life," said Antony Rajkumar, vice president & strategic planning director, Global Team Ford.
