Volkswagen makes you go the extra mile, by foot
Volkswagen Portugal is organizing a marathon at one of its factories. Part of the course will go through the production line and participants need to pick up their registration kit at one of Volkswagen’s car dealerships.
Why it matters
By reaching out to Lisbon’s growing number of runners, Volkswagen is allowing potential customers to have a behind the scenes look at the business. It also attempts to reinforce Volkswagen green credentials, but is this enough to captivate an audience that will literally be swiftly passing by?
Portuguese Police have bought eight Nissan Leaf cars for its Safe School Programme.
The Netherlands are developing safer highways by incorporating a glow-in-the-dark component to them.
The glow effect will be achieved with the help of a special photo luminescent powder able to charge in the daylight and then illuminate the road for up to 10 hours at night. The idea has already won the Best Future Concept prize at the Dutch Design Awards.
