Volkswagen to launch first locally manufactured sedan
Advertisement
#1
Quote:Volkswagen, a late entrant into the Indian market, is trying to catch up with competitors by expanding its product portfolio in the country. Vento, the German automaker’s first locally manufactured sedan, is the latest in the offing.

Priced at over Rs 9 lakh, the sedan would be launched on Tuesday. Designed keeping in mind the preferences and requirements of Indian consumers, the car, powered by a 1.6-litre engine, would be available in both petrol and diesel variants.

“It will be Volkswagen’s second volume model after Polo and will be coming as a premium entry-level sedan in the country,” Neeraj Garg, director (passenger cars), Volkswagen India, had said earlier. The sedan was a major milestone for the Volkswagen brand in India, he said.

Vento would be manufactured at Volkswagen’s Chakan plant, while the company’s other sedans are assembled at its Aurangabad facility. The plant, with an installed capacity of 110,000 units per annum, also rolls out Volkswagen Polo and Skoda Fabia.

Analysts said the sedan, along with Polo, would be a game-changer for Volkswagen India, as it would help the company be price competitive and one amongst equal when it comes to after-sale service.
