Why is there a spelling mistake in the latest Skoda Octavia advertisement?

Have you noticed that Skoda is offering 'ELETRIC' windows on its Octavia model? (See Auto Express issue 1156 page 6.)

There's also an incorrect use of the word "complimentary" in recent Mercedes-Benz ads. Advertising copywriters are recruited for their ability to write advertising copy. They didn't necessarily pass their English exams.
