It has been a glorious ride for Volkswagen and the company is rolling out some exiting schemes after when it’s Managing Director, Thierry Lespiaucq visited India to inaugurate new dealership and hand over the 3,00,000th car in India. He was so pleased with the company’s growth in India and felt optimistic about continuing with their growth momentum in the Indian market.
Hailing the government’s ‘Make in India’ and ‘Ease of Doing Business’ initiatives, he said the tax issue needs to be dealt with. Volkswagen will also consider ramping up the network once it crosses the sale of one lakh cars per annum, the MD added.
Besides all this, German Auto major Volkswagen is working on plans to roll out an ‘India specific’ sedan by next year after witnessing serious growth in the market after which India is the 2nd largest automobile market holder across the world. These were all revealed by the top official of that company.
It will be a compact Sedan and compatible with Indian conditions. The rollout will be most likely during next year,” Volkswagen Managing Director Thierry Lespiaucq told reporters here. He declined to divulge price details, but said it won’t be below Rs 5 lakh.
The company sold 45,000 units in 2014 in India and is confident of stability in 2015 also, he said. On dealerships, he spoke of “sufficient coverage” with nearly 120 showrooms across 100 cities in India.
After all, the company has showed progress in whatever it did and hence it still finds some room to expand its market across India. Volkswagen has always been a top notching sales company in terms of service and products. And I particularly feel that is why company is still living peacefully with its ability to draw its own potential customers. However with the plans of releasing compact sedan by next year, the company sure is on the track that will attain glory.
