Berlin Hosts The World’s First Electric Convoy At Formula E

BMWi took over the streets of Berlin with the first-ever electric vehicle convoy through the city. ‘Berlin Electrified’ sought to generate mass awareness of the Formula E season finale, with two groups of influencers on a unique trip experiencing Berlin’s vibrant culture and bringing fans along for the ride.

Each team was tasked with a set of content challenges including SIM racing and a special BMWi3 Sound Machine activity during their trip, while fans were asked to vote for their favourite team via Twitter and Instagram using the hashtags: #BMWConvoyEsports or #BMWConvoySound.

To bring the event to a close TRO facilitated a strategic activation between BMW and Formula E to deliver a unique all-electric or hybrid Drive-In Cinema experience, providing customers, fans and partners with the best view of the race action, further elevated through a special live performance from renowned music artist, Lost Frequencies.

Client Partner, Rob O’Siochain, commented: “TRO believe in the importance of shared experiences, now more than ever. This activation, which was turned around in record time, demonstrated how brands can still deliver for their consumers during challenging times, whilst respecting and following important COVID19 regulations.”
