HondaVAC Sweeps Away the Competition for the 2014 Odyssey

It’s one of those ideas that’s so brilliant and obvious that you are dumbfounded it’s taken someone this long to think of it—a built-in vacuum cleaner for a minivan. But Honda—thanks to inspiration from an engineer’s daughter—has finally done it: the HondaVAC comes standard on the Touring Elite model of the 2014 Honda Odyssey, and as Honda’s extensive marketing campaign is proving, they’re quite proud of it.

“Nobody else has a vacuum,” gloated Tom Peyton, Honda’s associate vice president of advertising. “Finding a point of differentiation [for minivans] can be tough, so shame on us if we don’t run with it.”

And run with it, they have. Honda has released several new commercials, using celebrity voice talents to tout the new vacuum. One commercial even features Neil Patrick Harris and Rainn Wilson, and Honda has hinted that more commercials are on their way.

Honda has also been aggressively hyping up the vacuum on Twitter: the automaker has been tweeting smack talk messages to other companies and products about how the HondaVAC will “wipe the floor” with them, if you will. This article compiles most of Honda’s Twitter trash talk.

Overall, it’s a funny, effective marketing scheme that—dare we say it—actually gives the minivan, or at least the 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite, some major cool points. Come by Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo and drive the Odyssey for yourself today!

The 2014 Honda Odyssey minivan is now available for purchase and reservation from Avery Greene Honda!

Designed specifically with families in mind, the 2014 Odyssey offers the latest in comfort, convenience and safety features. The most exciting feature for the already popular minivan is the addition of the HondaVAC, the world’s first in-vehicle vacuum cleaner, for all Odyssey Touring Elite models. The HondaVAC, which was designed with help from Shop-Vac, fits nicely in a secluded compartment in the back of the vehicle and is designed to clean crumbs, spills and other messes from virtually every corner of the minivan.

The Honda Odyssey receives several exterior upgrades for 2014, including a reshaped hood, LED tail lamps and a new grille. The Odyssey has also been structurally upgraded this year to help improve safety on the road.
