Volkswagen is also launching the app “Think Blue. World Championship.” The game is meant to heighten awareness of more efficient driving and shows that all drivers can make their own personal contribution to environmental protection without sacrificing driving pleasure. The game is available for downloading from the iTunes store for iPhone and iPad users and can also be played directly on the Volkswagen Facebook page

Until September 16th, participants can play not just alone but also against other international players. In addition, the game trains users for the national fuel saving competitions, the “Think Blue. Challenges.” that are to be held in many countries and will pit the best players from a country against each other. The winners of these national challenges as well as holders of a wildcard from the virtual game will all go to California for the “Think Blue. World Championship 2012.” from November 24 to 28, where they will have a chance of becoming world champion.

The international finals will take the best 20 competitors from San Francisco to Los Angeles. The driver who completes the run with the lowest fuel consumption and also demonstrates his or her knowledge of environmental protection and sustainability will become world champion.
