Volkswagen Group Malaysia Managing Director Dr Zeno Kerschbaumer said under the “Think Blue.” umbrella, Volkswagen targets to further reduce fuel consumption of its vehicles with core technologies such as TSI and DSG, which also reduced CO2 emissions.

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. 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 in adopting a healthy driving behaviour in an exciting and entertaining way.
