Firefly’s award-winning digital media platform, which launched atop Tesla Model 3 taxis in New York City, offers the highest resolution and most programmability of any digital out-of-home (DOOH) display on the market. The inaugural Tesla-top campaigns, featuring Swarovski (facilitated by Talon) and David Yurman, draw on Firefly’s dynamic content triggers like vehicle location, area demographics, traffic patterns, time-of-day, and real-time weather conditions.
Drive Sally’s recently-debuted Tesla taxi currently stands as the only electric vehicle registered for use as a taxi in New York City. With the prominence of taxi-top advertising, this launch marks a broader move toward a more environmentally-conscious industry.
