Volkswagen are planning on building on their existing investment in India, and are planning to launch a range of their most popular models.
VW Up! Heads to India?
One of the most exciting pieces of news from VW is that they are considering making their award-winning VW up! available for purchase in India.
Since its launch, the VW Up! has proved popular in the UK, impressing both prospective customers and industry experts, including TopGear, who have repeatedly lauded the city car.
While the first UK Volkswagen Up! drivers will get hold of their vehicles in March 2012, it looks like it’ll be a longer wait in India.
VW have penciled in the end of 2013 as a likely date to release the Up! there, if indeed the proposal goes ahead.
Part of huge investment
VW say that they’re planning on launching a selection of other models too, although as yet there aren’t any more details on which ones are being considered.
In addition, VW are planning on strengthening their research and development activities in India, and expect that their new plans for expansion will mean they end up topping the 500 million Euro investment they announced two years ago.
Volkswagen are eager to explore the huge opportunities they see for themselves in the Indian market, and intend to increase the production capacities they already have in place.
Volkswagen success in UK market
Meanwhile, VW’s continue to be popular in their established markets. The VW Passat goes from strength to strength, winning multiple awards and seeing the launch of a new 4×4 version, the Passat Alltrack.
The Volkswagen Amarok, currently supporting the Dakar Rally, has also garnered a range of awards, including WhatCar? Pick-up of the Year.
And now you can purchase or lease your VW with a clean environmental conscience, thanks to their commitment to cut their environmental impact by 25% by 2018.
