On the eve of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, official global partner Nissan has unveiled an intelligent car inside the Oval that connects fans to the excitement of the live matches by reacting to the big moments in real-time. The X-Trail will also interact with cricket fans around the world via activations on social media.

During play at the Oval, fans will see the X-Trail in car mode, a digital render of the 2017 Nissan X-Trail. When the action hots up on the pitch, the car will come to life reacting to fans and amplifying their excitement, by celebrating boundaries, highlighting milestone moments and adding to the tension of the big decisions.

Roel de Vries, Nissan Global Head of Marketing and Brand Strategy, said: “The ICC Champions Trophy 2017 set out with a vision to be the most connected cricket tournament ever and the X-Trail at the Oval is a new for fans to connect with our product displays. At Nissan, we believe that innovation can generate excitement and Nissan Intelligent Mobility defines how are cars are powered, driven and integrates with society.

The full-size X-Trail model is the result of a collaboration with partners Curb Media, DOOH.com and Fuse. It is mapped with 67,500 new generation Flexlyte LEDs, each individually programmed and animated using hundreds of colour combinations to enable the development of a wide variety of content and to optimise in changing weather conditions from bright summer sunshine to torrential summer rain!
