Hakuhodo campaign for Nexa and Suzuki looks to ‘create and inspire’

One of India’s leading car dealers, Nexa, is the focus of a new television campaign by Hakuhodo that also promotes Suzuki cars.

Nexa is part-owned by Suzuki, meaning the two TVCs promote both the auto brand and the showrooms at the same time.

Explaining the work, a Hakuhodo spokesperson said: “The TVC celebrates the relentless spirit of creators who never stop.

“It speaks to the explorers, innovators, influencers, experimenters, who keep moving. Nexa drives home its new philosophy with an impactful visual and audio language that’s true to its core of being premium and exclusive.”

Maruti Suzuki India executive director of marketing Tarun Garg added: “Nexa is a brand that has changed the face of Indian automobile industry. The team at Hakuhodo has surely delivered a campaign that brings alive our new philosophy and introduces it to the world in an impactful way.”

And Hakuhodo India national creative director Sabuj Sengupta added: “Not many brands can claim and fulfil this big commitment of #CreateInspire.
