RT50 Toyota Corona Found in Infiniti M Hybrid Ad

Oversight or subtle jab? In a new Nissan TV spot, the Infiniti M Hybrid speeds through “the last 100 years of hybrid technology.” When it gets to 1978, there’s an RT50 Toyota Corona sitting pretty in a supposed hybrid car dealership. And that’s not the only Aichi product in the commercial either. The M later whizzes by a Lexus GS450h en route to a balletic slow-mo drift as the voice-over announces it’s the first hybrid you’ll enjoy driving. Oooh, burn! Watch the full ad below the fold.

    Haha… That’s on old dealership in Long Beach @ Willow & Lakewood. A co-worker drove by when they were filming it not too long ago.

    I see they have plenty of Vanguard Citicars. I’ve only seen one, and it was at a drag race of all places. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sven_designs/5108096857/in/set-72157625101051007/

    The car in the commercial (with the guy in the car) is an early hybrid that may be on display at the LA Peterson Auto Museum. It is a modified Honda civic. It is an early electric hybrid. The building was a dealership and a Googie design. See LBReport.com – story by J. Mello for some history and planned reuse of the building.
