Volkswagen Huuhkajat collection

How did Volkswagen drive to the top spot of the most wanted car brands? There were a few challenges along the way. In the spring of 2021, car sales were unstable, Covid pandemic caused uncertainty and the component shortage prolonged delivery times. Interest in electric cars was on the rise, but the demand for more traditional diesel and petrol powered models also needed to be maintained. Together, Nitro and Volkswagen accelerated the demand for electric, hybrid and petrol cars, activated Finns to car dealerships and cleared the obstacles on Volkswagen's path to becoming Finland's most loved car brand.

Volkswagen drives the Finnish football family 

Finland's most beloved sport moves children, teens and adults, but long trips to the training and matches also demand a lot from the support teams. We figured this was a natural link between football and Volkswagen. Especially for the Finnish football players, the national team Huuhkajat (The Eagle-owls) is a great role model. The all-time Finnish football frenzy culminated in the first European Championship tournament of Huuhkajat in the summer of 2021. 

We designed an emotional and multi-channel on-topic campaign that spoke to Finns. It ultimately became the most successful Volkswagen campaign in Finland of all time.
