It is simply boosting me to become a more disciplined driver and helps protecting environment. I think more exciting data can be shared with customers as OBD device connected to the car will make it possible.
Thanks to VW team for continuously being first in introducing such technologies in Indian market. Keep up the good work!

Dear ArikrishnanV, we want to thank you for your feedback and the good review! Please be assured that we always strive to improve our services. Have fun using the app! Best regards, Volkswagen Digital Services
Good app, but...
Should’ve had more features -It should show the consumption in kilometres per liter along with the approximate cost.
Should’ve had more parameters to monitor except battery voltage and fuel level.
The fuel monitor should’ve had more metrics, graphs to see how expenditure has been so far.
Buggy - for some reason it fails to record some trips.
Gimmicky - not sure what to do with all the accumulated points. Challenges get boring after a while.
I wish vw comes up with a reward mechanism if you drive efficiently, etc.
