Nashville, TN — Dataium, the largest aggregator of online automotive shopper behavior, today released its Promotional Impact Reports for the 2012 Super Bowl advertisers in the automotive category. The reports detail the shopping, inventory search, and lead activity of over 70 million active auto shoppers during the Super Bowl at the precise times each of the manufacturer’s spots were broadcast.
With respect to specific models, Motley Crue, MMA fighters, and supermodels helped the Kia Optima advance vehicle-specific searches on the brand’s dealership websites by over 140% once the commercial aired. On the contrary, the Hyundai ad for its Veloster Turbo featuring the cheetah saw a 34% decline in searches once the ad was televised.
Despite the positive growth expected in the industry in 2012, the number of commercials within the automotive category during the 2012 Super Bowl declined by 22% over the previous year. Although the number of commercials declined in 2012, the number of manufacturers that advertised during the event increased by 8%. Four brands, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, and Nissan advertised in 2011 but chose not to play the Super Bowl advertising game at all in 2012. In contrast, five brands, Acura, Cadillac, Fiat, Lexus and Toyota sat out last year’s game but produced ads for the 2012 event. In 2011, Chevrolet ran the most ads during the game, while in 2012; they tied with Hyundai for the most commercials, with a total of five for both brands.
