Renault is one of the many automobile companies to have entered the metaverse in recent times. The web3.0 space has become a go-to destination for global automakers. Popular brand Volkswagen released an advertising campaign titled “Game On,” in the metaverse, in April.

Through this campaign, Volkswagen introduced its metaverse presence to its user base, allowing them to find NFTs in an immersive reality. Similarly, Japanese automobile company, Nissan has also launched one of its brand new electric cars on metaverse, enabling potential buyers to test car features and take it for a spin in a virtual ecosystem.

Brands like Nissan are looking at the metaverse as “an opportunity to connect with new audiences like never before.”

Importantly, analysts anticipate that approximately 75% of all automobiles will be sold via embedded blockchain technology.
