In preparation for the launch of the all new A-Class in Japan on 17 Jan 2013, Mercedes has come up with an anime staring the stylish hatchback as promotional material. This is great marketing strategy as it customizes according to local taste. This is similar to MacDonaldís offering different types of burger for different countries.

The storyline from Mercedes is as follows:

"In the not so distant future, to cope with the traffic jams and verticalization due to the Increased population, the city of Tokyo was reconstructed under the theme of 'city sharing' in which people share the urbane space by transforming the roads and city structure by time of the day.

A woman named Nico is walking in the city. She is having her long-awaited day off; however, she does not know what to do and who to hang out with. She hopes an exciting thing suddenly happens.

Then, a truck passed right before her eyes. The loud music and flashy decoration of the vehicle reminded Nico the car that everyone's talking about on the internet. As soon as Nico saw it, she ran after it, then ran into Gatsu and Makito. Nico get in the latest A-Class and they chase after the truck driving through the city that is changing its form rapidly.

See if they catch up with the legendary truck.

In the animation, the body-kitted A-Class is seen flying across highways and both the car and passengers appear unharmed. Just donít expect the same outcome in real life [laugh]

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
