VW iPad ad shows how far your Volkswagen Passat can go

A new VW iPad exclusive ad/online experience, demonstrates how far you can go on with Volkswagen's TDI Clean Diesel engines by taking them on a virtual road trip. "TDI TouchDrive", was created for Motor Trend’s and Automobile Magazine’s iMag format. It combines video, animation and interaction to educate consumers about Volkswagen’s TDI Clean Diesel technology and range.
The personalized ad uses geolocation and driving directions to provide users with four or five route options to virtually drive 795 miles in a Passat TDI on a single tank of fuel. Interactive “bubbles” with fun road trip stats, film content and info appear along with way to show how the trip might go down.
At the end, users are taken to the destination with Google Street View and can then pick a new trip. The experience automatically generates new road trips when users are connected to WiFi, or provides five pre-programmed roadtrips for those not connected.
Deutsch LA created the ad in conjunction with MediaCom and MindOverEye, who handled back-end development.
