Fiat Punto

The Fiat Street EVO Application.

Leo Burnett Madrid continues to innovate and push the boundaries for Fiat on a limited budget. The latest part of a continuing campaign for the Italian auto maker is a new iPhone application targeted at a more tech savvy crowd. To promote the new Fiat Punto, Leo Burnett developed an iPhone application that uses road signs like QR codes.

Working like a game, people are encouraged to capture the signs with the application, and when they do they receive specific information about the car. A stop sign for instance gives the user info about the new breaking system in the Punto. A curvy road sign will tell them about the intelligent headlight system on the car. As an even bigger incentive to participate, hundreds of prizes were attached to a number of the signs in designated areas. The first people to scan a specific sign won a prize.

Working with a small budget Leo Burnett and Fiat managed to create their largest ever outdoor campaign with over 1,000,000 traffic signs being spotted on week one. The application also directed people to their nearest Fiat dealer via the iPhone’s GPS which gave Fiat an 82% increase in test drives.Pretty impressive numbers when you think about it.
