Nissan is shifting gears with its marketing efforts in Canada, putting a new emphasis on its motorsport heritage to build itself as an all-encompassing brand, rather than focusing on individual vehicles in its lineup.
Developed alongside Nissan United, Juniper Park TBWA’s bespoke agency for the automaker, the new campaign revolves around a 60-second spot with various cuts that feature the Sentra, Rogue, Nissan Z and the Super GT.

“Our goal was to showcase Nissan’s long heritage of performance, whether it’s our involvement in motorsport globally or in Canada with our very own Sentra Cup racing series,” said Alannah David- Clark, Senior Director of Marketing Communications at Nissan Canada. Combining both mainstream sport and motorsport, adds David-Clark, is a logical approach, as the technology and design used in its racing vehicles regularly shape the development of the cars Canadians drive every day.

“As the Nissan brand continues to grow and evolve in Canada, we want consumers to know that we are more than just individual nameplates,” said David-Clark. “Nissan represents excellent products, technologies and innovations, across all offerings and that can be felt through the overall consumer experience. Our goal is to communicate an exciting experience across all brand touchpoints, whether you’re behind the wheel, whether you’re visiting our showrooms or encountering our brand at an event or online.
The campaign was launched nationwide across TV, OLV, OOH, social, digital and cinema. It will last until fall.
