As the world fights the coronavirus pandemic, its important for us to stay home and flatten the curve. Even your favorite car makers are motivating you for the same.
Coronavirus has struck the world hard and everything seems to have come to standstill. With a nation wide lockdown in place, it might seem very difficult to spend time for the next couple of weeks. However, we are all in this together and social distancing seems to be the only way out of it. Even your favorite car manufacturers are urging you to stay at home to flatten the curve. Here are a few messages from your favorite car brand.
Audi has released a video on their social media handles and nothing catches the essence of social distancing more than this. The video shows the four rings in the Audi logo coming apart, thus signifying social distancing. The rings then come together again which means that by practicing social distancing now, we will all become united in our fight against the coronavirus at the end.
BMW are particularly known for their handling and the German carmaker has tapped exactly on what makes them better than the rest. While the empty roads and twisties might urge you to take your car out for a drive, the only curve we need to think about is how to flatten the curve of the spread of the disease. Your roads can definitely wait and so will your car as the most important thing right now is to stay indoors.
The Mercedes Benz video shows a GLE safety parked outside its owner’s home, thus giving out the message for all people to stay at home while your car stands at your guard. The video then goes out to thank all the doctors, nurses, people in emergency services, policemen and all other people entrusted with the duty of safe guarding the lives of many. Even our support and solidarity stands with all these people.
Volkswagen’s video message is somewhat similar to that of Audi’s. After a brief preview on the crisis, we can see the V and the W in Volkswagen’s logo move apart from each other, thus signifying social distancing and staying at home. Also, did you notice Volkswagen’s new 2D logo that has lost one of the outer rings?
Lastly, we have a video from Nissan which shows a montage of empty roads from across the world, thus signifying that the entire world is in this together and that the entire world has to come together to break the chain. In the end, the video shows a Nissan car parked in its garage, and the owner standing at his balcony, a sight that has become very familiar lately.
We understand that staying home for three weeks at a stretch can become quite frustating as boredom takes over. However, its important for the health of all your near and dear ones. Stay at home, watch your favorite movies (we have even compiled a list of movies for petrolheads to watch), read books, create some art and most importantly, stay safe.
