Campaign Spotlight: Leonardo DiCaprio and Leo Burnett take the scenic route in a Fiat New 500

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK – Fiat is transitioning into becoming an electric-only brand by 2030, in its pledge to phase out all combustion-engined models from its global line-up from 2025 onwards, starting with the Fiat New 500. The Italian automobile manufacturer’s new campaign for their first ever electric car features Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the most active celebrities in the climate change movement, a vocal environmental activist and champion of biodiversity for the past 25 years.

Titled “The Driver” and directed by Martin Werner, created by Leo Burnett, and produced by Movie Magic, the campaign starts with DiCaprio exiting his trailer after a shoot and handing his driver the keys to his electric car, the Fiat New 500. His driver seems skeptical with this choice. DiCaprio wordlessly encourages him to take the car out for a spin and lets the car speak for itself. As it warms up, the driver starts to slowly warm up to it as well, without even realizing himself. In the end, the driver decides to take the scenic route.
