Launched in Indonesia, Honda BR-V is soon to be launched in India this year. In anticipation of the launch, Honda Cars India today kicked-off a new innovative marketing campaign called #WhereNextWithBRV.
As the hashtag suggests, the basic idea is to get fans and consumers on social media excited about the product by posting the question “Where do you want to go next with BR-V”. Based on the response from their fans on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, Honda will take their new BR-V to various locations over the next 20 days.
Below is a teaser video shared by the company.
