The ‘Think Blue. World Championship’ app reveals another facet of Think Blue. – Volkswagen’s holistic approach to sustainability. The game heightens awareness of more efficient driving and shows that all drivers can make their own personal contribution to environmental protection without sacrificing driving pleasure.

“The Think Blue. World Championship 2013 demonstrates the company’s target to reduce CO2 emissions while maintaining the performance and driving fun for the customer,” said Volkswagen Group Malaysia MD Dr Zeno Kerschbaumer. “Furthermore, driving behaviour is a very important part in reducing fuel consumption, which is the reason behind this challenge.”

He added that the principle of “Think Blue.” is perfectly reflected by the game and inspires everyone to adopt a healthy driving behaviour in an exciting and entertaining way.

Under the “Think Blue.” umbrella, Volkswagen targets to further reduce its vehicles’ fuel consumption and CO2 emissions using core technologies such as TSI and DSG.
