DriveTime was purpose-built to be the auto dealer for all those with bad credit. Because it not only offered credit-crunched customers much-needed cars, but also acted as the bank extending loans where other financial institutions wouldn’t. Its proprietary algorithm evaluated consumers in a more holistic way, put tens of thousands behind the wheel and grew the company to a billion-dollar market leader.
But it was that algorithm, along with a suite of other consumer-focused technological innovations, that propelled DriveTime to consider a new, wider audience. The innovative online services they provide, like knowing your down and monthly payments on a particular vehicle in just two minutes, are valuable to any consumer and really represent a smarter car-buying process.
That new direction is front and center in a new $50 million campaign launching today. Shot by the Perlorian Brothers with stunning visual effects by Freefolk, the spots ask the all-important question: if you’re not buying your car at DriveTime, how smart are you?
