We all knew that IKEA was really good at selling kit furniture, but it was quite a surprise to hear about the impending lauch of the first car to be marketed under the IKEA brand! After a two-week, suspense-building teaser campaign that showed a draped automobile shape with a countdown running behind it, IKEA finally revealed the new model on 1 April (hmmmm…). What had the drape concealed? No wheels. No motor. No car at all, in fact. Instead, what was being launched was a new carpool interface for people who want to ride-share on their way to IKEA! Co-developed with the WWF, this cheaper, cleaner way to go shopping is in keeping with IKEA’s eco-friendly attitude. Good idea, good buzz — now we just hope that all the carpoolers don’t plan to buy wardrobes. To see the concept video, click here.
