Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf use one idea in two very different ads

In May 2011,
Nissan and
Renault took the idea of
gas-powered everything and ran with it in a moderately funny commercial for the
Leaf EV that poked fun at the idea of using gasoline to power our everyday electronic devices. Immediately afterward,
General Motors had
an unofficial reply (a snide Tweet) that made fun of
Nissan for ignoring the benefits of gasoline in the »
tow trucks they need and
rental cars they recommend as backup to their product.»

Now, over two years later, we have another response of sorts in a new 30-second commercial for the
Chevy Volt called «Backup Power.» This time, instead of a gasoline power
generator being the dirty smoke machine in the bathroom, it’s a smile-inducing lifesaver. It’s almost as if the two ads intentionally highlight – in easy-to-digest, 30-second fashion – the different benefits of the two powertrains. Interesting. You can see both commercials down
