Great minds think alike? What are the chances two ads from two different car companies touting their electric vehicles would be released on the same day with an eerily similar concept? Pretty unlikley, eh?
Before everyone starts getting all excited remember that Nissan and Renault created an industrial and creative alliance back in 1999. Renault holds a 43.4% stake in Nissan, while Nissan holds 15% in Renault. The Renault-Nissan Alliance is working together to develop a complete range of electric powertrains.
Adverbog published a post earlier today pointing out the similarities.
Watch for yourselves below. One alliance, one brief, two executions?
