Renault Zoe & BMW i3 Advertising In Warsaw & Munich Airports (Video & Pics)

August 11th, 2014 by  


Going to and returning from either the unveiling of Solar Impulse 2 in Switzerland or Abu Dhabi Ascent in the UAE, I was surprised to see an actual Renault Zoe on display in the Warsaw airport and the BMW i3 advertised in the Munich airport.

Seeing the Renault Zoe was certainly the bigger surprise. Poland doesn’t have any electric car incentives as far as I’m aware, and almost no electric cars on the roads at all — I’ve never seen one.

Interestingly, however, this isn’t the only plug-in car ad I’ve seen in Poland. I’ve seen BMW i8 commercials on television a few times. That was also a big surprise given that the i8 is an expensive, limited-production car and Poland isn’t a particularly wealthy country.

Of course, I decided to make a quick video of the Renault Zoe and take a bunch of pics while waiting for my connecting flight. Check them out here:

If you can read German and find the BMW i3 ad below at all interesting, please feel free to provide your best translation in the comments!

Not as flashy as an actual vehicle, but that was quite a large ad in a prominent place in the airport.
