Volkswagen India Exports 100,000th Car to Mexico

Volkswagen India has exported the 100,000th car to Mexico from its production facility at Chakan, Pune. The state-of-the-art production facility of the company in Chakan, Pune has achieved this milestone in less than two years after starting export to the North American country. The 100,000th car was a red Volkswagen Vento, powered with a 1.6-litre MPI engine, which was shipped from the Mumbai Port to Mexico on the vessel Höegh Asia.

Mr. Carsten Goransch commented on this occasion, "Highest Quality is in the DNA of Volkswagen around the world. We, in Pune, have been building world class cars which have resulted in high demand for our products in the global market. The 1,00,000th car that we have shipped to Mexico today is a testimony to this fact. It makes us all at the Pune Plant extremely proud of what we have achieved so far." The 1,00,000th export car to Mexico embarked on a seven-week journey to the North American country after being flagged off at Mumbai Port. For those asking, the Vento, built at the Pune Plant, replaced the outgoing Jetta Classico in the Mexican market around two years back.

Starting with the first single export market, South Africa in 2011, Volkswagen India has been able to ramp-up the export business to form a second strong leg of its business operations. he 'Made-in-India Vento' climbed the sales charts in Mexico rapidly and is already in the top three most sold cars in Mexico in the first half of 2015. It is also the highest sold Volkswagen in Mexico at the moment.
