Titled ‘Don’t Get Left Behind’, this new TV ad promotes the Toyota Corolla self-charging hybrid by driving the hatchback past cars from various eras.
We watch the Corolla speed past iconic automobiles from different decades of the 1900’s, while highlighting many of their flaws, before finishing off passing a modern day full electric car as its owner waits for it to charge. This video was filmed in Teruel, Spain and over the Nelson Mandela Bridge at El Prat del Llobregat, Barcelona.
