The whole idea behind this initiative is about promoting clean energy, in this case --specifically buying an Electric car.
They are wanting someone to be a host that will be sitting in the passenger seat of an electric car as a driver drives them around. (They are trying to do this at the Indianapolis Speedway). So most of the shoot will be inside the car with GoPro cameras and wireless mics. They are looking for the host to ride with them and help prompt responses.
They are wanting hosts to be likable, credible, but not like car salespeople or a spokesperson. You are not selling this specific car, you're promoting the idea of an electric vehicle in general. They ask that people refer to this video for point of reference: https://www.ispot.tv/ad/wv2A/2018-chevrolet-traverse-carpool-surprise
For the Audition Video:
You can pretend you are riding in the car, talking to the driver (who will be basically the "real person") about this electric vehicle. Ad-lib a little bit of dialogue revolving around this.
All of the cars with be electric Vehicles (EVs) and the meat of the responses will be geared towards that stuff. “I didnt know these had this much punch” or “I cant believe I can go 300mpg to a charge” we would like the host to help not only prompt those responses, but also chime in with stats here and there “car X is class leading in MPG” , production can get you up to speed on key stats before hand. But overall, this won't be scripted on the actual shoot. So just use your improvisational skills to relay this type of dialogue. Again - more conversational and not "pitchy."
