Mahindra shifts gears in Marazzo launch, makes users tilt their phone to experience the car in a unique interactive mobile ad

Campaign by Interactive Avenues & mCanvas engages users and generates leads for automotive giant

mCanvas, the experiential storytelling ad platform for small screens, has created an interactive ad campaign for Mahindra & Mahindra to launch its MUV - Marazzo. Matching the shark-inspired design and features that make Marazzo a show-stealer in its range of cars, the innovative creative mirrored the same level of smooth and elegant design.

mCanvas created the campaign using its ‘Scroller’ format and activated the accelerometer sensor of the phone. Upon tilting their phones left or right, users could see the interior & exterior of the car and experience its various features. With 25% users interacting with the ad, the campaign not only generated valuable leads, but also created strong brand recall.




Reaching close to 3 million users, the campaign is seeing a massive 2% click-through rate - beating the 0.25% industry average for mobile banner ads. Users are spending 15 seconds on average engaging with the creative.

“mCanvas’ format hooked the user to the ad with its rich tilt functionality, not only helping in bringing enquiries but also getting the user involved with the launch of the car thus creating a lasting brand image,” said Harish Iyer, EVP, Interactive Avenues. He further added, “mCanvas always pushes the boundaries with innovative ideas and we look forward to this alliance for delighting our clients.”

Vishal Rupani, Co-founder & COO, mCanvas said “We’re always up for doing something that adds value to the brand’s communication, while being technically innovative and engaging for the users. For Mahindra Marazzo, we are happy with the response that the campaign is receiving and the way it communicates the brand narrative.”
