Nissan reportedly paid about US$250 million to sponsor the games, a campaign that highlights its recent investment in Brazil and a brazen bet that the country’s battered economy is on the verge of recovery. The company is using the games to unveil a new compact sport utility vehicle, the first time any major automaker, Nissan included, has ever used Brazil to launch a model destined for a global market.The CUV, called the Kicks, was conceived with the help of Nissan’s Rio design team.Nissan hopes to sell 50,000 Kicks in Latin America in the next 12 months. The price for a fully loaded model starts at about 85,000 reais (us$26,850). For now, Nissan will import the new CUVs from Mexico. Then the company plans to add production at its new 2.6 billion reais factory in Resende, an industrial town 160 km northwest of Rio. The company introduced a campaign on TV and online featuring Huck, a high-profile Brazilian talk-show host. Most of it is typical, factory-tour stuff, but in one stunt, Huck whisked an unsuspecting 22-year-old Brazilian salesman out of the Rio airport to Japan, where they eat sushi, try to sell perfumed Brazilian panties on the streets of Tokyo, and eventually tour a Nissan factory.
