Volkswagen Touareg BlueMotion: Line Drawing

Touareg BlueMotion. Even the ad has less impact on the environment.
A small change can make a big difference. Like using 85% less ink in this magazine ad, which significantly decreases the impact of harsh toxins on the environment. Why? Because contributing towards a sustainable future is what our innovative BlueMotion Technologies were made for.

Kinda interesting, but it doesn't look very sexy IMO.

The Visual & the Headline together says it all. Why complex?

Complex?, what do you mean? message is clear enough, and it goes with VW ad style (Top: Image, Bottom: blank with copy).

What's too complex to understand? Couldn't be simpler...

It might not be very sexy, but it's functional, as the ad says, environmentally friendlier and I can't hate on that!

All this symbolism will be lost the next time they launch a full-page, full-colour glossy ad.

Less impact, means pale and lack of colors?

Freaking amazing. If this really does even make the tiniest difference it's truly a great idea, and fits really well with the rest of the campaign.

NAH!!! VW does ample branding in India and china using excessive ink and also going for road blocks in newspapers. This ad aint changing that...

And then GOD said...
Let there be creativity!!!

it;s a bit different and innovative,,,,but why is the ad in black and white?

Nice idea
However for a car ad, it still has to demonstrate the car as nicely as possible and that's not deliver very well in this BW ad.

Is this ad printed with BlueMotion Technologies, is my first thought after reading this

"Like using 85% less ink in this magazine ad, which significantly decreases the impact of harsh toxins on the environment. Why? Because contributing towards a sustainable future is what our innovative BlueMotion Technologies were made for."

WHY IS THE AD IN B&W THEN?
